Wozniacki calls for Serena seeding at Wimbledon

Serena Williams Serena Williams is a 23-time Grand Slam winner

The American, now ranked 181st in the world, was unseeded at the French Open.

The Wimbledon Championships start July 2nd, and one of the most interesting stories is Serena Williams' return from pregnancy.

Williams had stepped into the Lower East Side marketplace to attend the unveiling of a nearby street mural commissioned by Allstate Foundation Purple Purse.

That's the situation for Williams, who was not given a seeded spot by French Open officials.

"There are records out there that I want, and I'll get there, but in due time".

Asked in Birmingham last week where she thinks the 23-time major singles champion should be inserted in the seedings, two-time Wimbledon victor Kvitova paused and then called for Williams to be placed at No. 9, one spot below her.

Williams, along with many tennis lovers around the world, is anticipating today's meeting by the All England Tennis Club.

Meanwhile an elderly couple faced death threats following social media rumours falsely linking them to the rapper's death. TMZ reports that the murder suspect was charged with probation violation for a previous grand theft charge.

Now stationed at No. 9 in the rankings: Venus Williams, herself a five-time solo Wimbledon champ, also with six doubles titles to her credit at SW19 alongside her younger sister.

"I think and I hope - and it should be under review - to change these rules". You can't tell me - I'm sorry, I apologise to the 32nd player in the world.

Briefly: not great. She lost early at Indian Wells and Miami, losing to Venus Williams at Indian Wells in the third rounding and losing in the first round to Naomi Osaka in Miami. "I would not want to be the No. 32 player in the world who has worked hard in the previous year to obtain this ranking". This was one of a clutch of strangely lacklustre all-Williams finals that played a role in the public's apathy.

"There was definitely pressure towards the end", said Williams, who also completed the Serena Slam in 2003. But Williams has made only a tentative return to action following complications during daughter Alexis Olympia's birth. Three months later, Williams and Ohanian, 35, Wednesday in an intimate New Orleans ceremony.

To his credit, McEnroe weighed in that she deserves special consideration: "I don't think there would be a player that would complain, especially the top ones, if she was one of the top eight". "But I realized everyone is different, everyone reacts differently". Margaret Court, the most slam-winning player of all time, was able to add three to her already impressive 21 after a pregnancy in 1972.

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

But had Simona Halep not played with the level of mental strength as she did, Stephens would have probably won her second Major. That's why I gave my daughter the trophy. "I think there should definitely be help if you want to do that, just like in a job that you have, you know, an office job". Because, to be honest, I feel pressure to be Serena.
