Tennis champion Serena Williams has been hospitalized in L.A. with a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in the lungs. She suffered the health scare Monday.

Williams looked stunning at Sunday's Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party just hours before the unexpected condition surfaced.

Serena had been spotted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. several times over the past week regarding the conditioned, but it worsened this week.

"Serena Williams underwent emergency treatment at Cedars for a hematoma she suffered as a result of treatment for a more critical situation," her rep says.

"Last week, Serena suffered from a pulmonary embolism [a blood clot in the lungs] which was discovered upon her return to L.A.," the star's rep adds.

"She had been in New York for ongoing issues with her foot. Doctors continue to monitor her situation closely to avoid additional complications."

Here's wishing Serena a fast, speedy recovery.


@ Serena, Thinking of you at this time. Continue to take good care of yourself, and take your time coming back to the courts. Let the professionals care for you,take time to heal, and looking forward to seeing you when you are feeling much better.


Hope she recovers fast. Glad they caught it, many people who have these die because they never know it is there.
Wish her all the best!
