Wimbledon women's champion Serena Williams has targeted early summer as her return date following emergency surgery for a blood clot on her lung.

She is recuperating at home under medical supervision after suffering a haematoma following treatment last week for a pulmonary embolism.

In a statement, the 29-year-old said that while she can't make any promises now, she hopes to be back by early summer.

It means that the race is on for her to be fit for the French Open at Roland Garros from 22 May to 5 June.

Failing that, the next target would be the defense of her Wimbledon title, with the championships starting on 20 June and running to 3 July.
