She missed eight months after having surgery
She missed eight months after having surgery louis vuitton outlet on her left knee in 2003, the year she had completed a self-styled "Serena Slam" by winning four consecutive major titles. Of more concern: Only a few days after winning Wimbledon in 2010, Williams cut both feet on broken glass while leaving a restaurant in Germany, leading to two operations on her right foot. Then she got clots in her lungs and needed to inject herself with a blood thinner. Those shots led to a pool of blood gathering under her stomach's skin, requiring another procedure in the hospital. In all, she was off the tour for about 10 months, returning in 2011. "She was so disgusted at home. She felt like she was useless. That's the way it is with athletes, I guess. She couldn't sit still," authentic louis vuitton said Williams' mother, Oracene Price. "She was getting depressed. A lot to overcome." Talk about making up for lost time. Take a look at what Williams has done lately. Back on May 29, she lost to a woman ranked 111th at the French Open, the American's only first-round exit in 49 career Grand Slam tournaments. "I was miserable after that loss in Paris. I have never been so miserable after a loss," Williams said. "I pulled it together. ... Sometimes, they say, it's good to lose." Certainly in her case. Since then, Williams is 26-1, including titles at louis vuitton sale Wimbledon, the London Olympics and the U.S. Open.
