Still in rehab for her foot injury, she hasn’t played since July after stepping on some broken glass and having foot surgery. Now she’s been hospitalized for something much more serious.

Serena Williams has suffered from a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in her lungs. She had been spotted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles several times over the past week, but her rep, Nicole Chabot, has finally confirmed her health status to PEOPLE.

On Monday, February 28, Serena
“underwent emergency treatment at Cedars for a hematoma she suffered as a result of treatment for a more critical situation.”

“Last week, Serena suffered from a pulmonary embolism [a blood clot in the lungs] which was discovered upon her return to L.A. She had been in New York for doctor appointments for the ongoing issues with her foot.”

Serena responded saying,

“I know I will be okay, but am praying and hoping this will all be behind me soon,”
“While I can’t make any promises now on my return [to tennis], I hope to be back by early summer. That said, my main goal is to make sure I get there safely.”

Her rep also says in a statement,

“Thankfully everything was caught in time. With continued doctor visits to monitor her situation, she is recuperating at home under strict medical supervision.”
