Serena Williams rebounds from dangerous blood clot a year ago, wins her 5th Wimbledon Championship and her 14th Grand Slam.
She clambered into the players’ box to celebrate with her family, and then said: “I can’t describe it. I almost didn’t make it when I was in that hospital, but here I am again and it’s so worth it.
“I never dreamed of being here when I was so down but I never gave up.”
Williams then turned to her family and friends, in particular dad Richard, mum Oracene, sister Venus and physiotherapist Esther Lee, and said: “I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
“I could never have done this without you when you were with me in the hospital. Thank you so much.”
