Serena Williams should be seeded at Wimbledon, says Caroline Wozniacki

Serena Williams

Williams, a seven-time victor of the Wimbledon singles title, could miss out on being named as one of the 32 seeds after she took maternity leave for the birth of her first child.

Now, she is a Major champion (2017 US Open) and the top-ranked American woman with a career high of no. 4 in the WTA singles ranking. "At the same time, you know, I think she's shown that she's on the right track to come back, and I think she deserves, you know, to be getting a little bit of help, because she's proven that she has been the best player for a very long time".

Williams won Wimbledon back in 2016, marking her 22nd Grand Slam singles title. "You can never underestimate a champion like her, even though she didn't play as much", Muguruza said.

"I think and I hope - and it should be under review - to change these rules".

Serena Williams was unseeded at the French Open last month due to an extended absence for the birth of her first child but she is not likely to face the same problem at the U.S. Open. "I've played tennis for over 30 years, so I'm so used to [being] incredibly fit", she said. She's listed at +600 on the odds sheet, but she's playing well this year (having won the Birmingham Classic just last weekend) and is maybe a safer pick than some of the other favorites.

Moms breastfeed in front of ICE headquarters to protest Trump immigration policies
First lady Melania Trump made a surprise trip to Texas to get a firsthand look at the crisis affecting children. Other protesters, who included other parents, children and activists, waved signs as the mothers nursed.


John McEnroe and Serena Williams don't share the greatest of the bonds. "But Williams went on to beat seeded players in the second and third rounds before withdrawing with a pectoral injury".

Williams, made her return to the tour in March at Indian Wells and Miami, following the birth of her daughter.

But had Simona Halep not played with the level of mental strength as she did, Stephens would have probably won her second Major. "But I realized everyone is different, everyone reacts differently". I think it's encouraging.

The seeding meeting is due to take place on 26 June.

This means that expecting mothers who take a break from the tennis world for their pregnancy won't slide way down in rank just because of a break from the game.
