McEnroe says Serena should be seeded at Wimbledon

Williams, who was ranked No. 1 in the world when she ceased playing after winning the 2017 Australian Open, is now ranked 183.

Serena Williams will likely make her latest comeback at Wimbledon.

She said: "I think Wimbledon will make the right choice and I think they will seed her".

The former world number one made her comeback in March after giving birth a year ago and is 183 in the rankings.

An ace for female tennis players everywhere: The U.S. Open just announced it will not penalize players whose rankings slip because of pregnancy leave when awarding seeds in this year's tournament (beginning August 27), according to The Washington Post.

Wimbledon takes place from July 2 to 15.

The American did not play at the lawn competition last year as she was heavily pregnant although she remains the favourite this year in the eyes of many despite her lack of time on court.

Initially, Richard Lewis, the club's chief executive, said it was "unlikely" Williams would be seeded, but that comment drew criticism, including from former Grand Slam victor John McEnroe.

Serena Williams is one of the most dominant players in the history of tennis.

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

"I think so [on Williams going far]". Because I think ten years from now I think more and more players will want to have families and then coming back.

"I think she is competitive, her level and fitness is back. But Williams went on to beat seeded players in the second and third rounds before withdrawing with a pectoral injury". "It was weird", Williams said, reflecting on her pregnancy. She had a deep run at the French Open, but given that clay is her favorite surface and given her struggles on faster surfaces this year, I'd give Muguruza a pass. The pregnancy, the time away from the sport, and the recent injury are just enough to scare bettors into longish odds for Williams, and those concerns might be unfounded. "It was this whole new strength that I actually never knew I had".
