Serena Williams has stated that COVID-19 outbreak has given her time with her family. She also said that this has turned her into a bit of “neurotic” and “recluse”.
Williams has a history of blood clots and pulmonary embolisms. This is one of the reasons that the 23-time Grand Slam champion has not taken the coronavirus outbreak lightly. She has stated that her top priority has been her health.
“I’ve been a little bit of a recluse,” said Serena. “I don’t have full lung capacity so I’m not sure what would happen to me. I’m sure I would be OK but I don’t want to find out.”
Serena is set out to play in the US Open. She said it was fun to finally return to tennis.
“I have like 50 masks that I travel with…I’m super careful with what I’ve been doing, and everyone in the Serena bubble is really protected. Because at the end of the day it’s cool to play tennis, but this is my life and this is my health, so I’ve been a little neurotic to an extent but that’s just what I have to be right now.”
