The 13-time Grand Slam champion said Wednesday she hopes to return this summer after recovering from a recent pulmonary embolism followed by a hematoma.

Williams says she hasn't left her Los Angles house much since going to the hospital on Feb. 18 when she said she "couldn't breathe." Williams says she had a CAT scan of her lungs and they "found several blood clots." Her treatment involved self-injecting blood thinners. As a result, she developed a hematoma in her stomach that grew to the size of "a grapefruit" and was surgically removed.

Her absence could stretch to almost a year since winning Wimbledon in July
