Serena Williams covers the latest issue of Vogue with baby daughter Alexis, and the tennis great opened up about the health scare she suffered shortly after giving birth.

She will be defending her Australian Open title in March at Indian Wells, and will also debut a new clothing line in March on her website.

Serena appears in a red Versace dress while holding the baby, who is wearing a white bodysuit and touching her mom while making a fist nearly victoriously with her other hand. "I was like, listen to Dr. Williams!" she quipped.

Alexis said of the time: "I was happy to change diapers, but on top of everything she was going through, the feeling of not being able to help made it even harder".

Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, told Vogue she is determined to win more major titles and surpass the record of 24 Slams held by Australia's Margaret Court. Knowing I've got this attractive baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match. "It's not a secret that I have my sights on 25", she said.

American Red Cross makes urgent request for blood and platelet donations
A local organization is seeking blood donors after their supply dipped extremely low at the start of the new year. More than 150 drives were canceled across the country, including 10 in NY just last week.

"When I'm too anxious I lose matches, and I feel like a lot of that anxiety disappeared when Olympia was born", she said.

A panicked Serena, who couldn't catch a breath, told the medical team that she would need a CT scan and a blood thinner immediately. "The surgery went off without a hitch; Alexis cut the cord, and the wailing newborn fell silent the moment she was laid on her mother's chest", Vogue reports. I'm not sure why we think that way, but I know that we're sometimes taught to not dream as big as men, not to believe we can be a president or a CEO, when in the same household, a male child is told he can be anything he wants.

And when she finally returned home, she was bedridden for six weeks.

In the interview, Williams also discussed her rivalry with her older sister, Venus. "Knowing I've got this attractive baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match. If there's no clear number one, it's like, yeah, I can get my spot back", she asserts. "I hate playing her because she gets this look on her face where she just looks sad if she's losing". "After competing in Abu Dhabi I realized that although I am super close, I'm not where I personally want to be", Williams said in a statement released by Australian Open organizers. "It breaks my heart".
