McEnroe calls On Wimbledon chiefs to show sense as Williams returns

Former world No. 1 Serena Williams received even more support to be seeded ahead of Wimbledon which takes place next week.
The Wimbledon Championships start July 2nd, and one of the most interesting stories is Serena Williams' return from pregnancy. She'll need some matches before she's totally up to speed, and unfortunately the pectoral injury denied her a few valuable matches against top players.
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.
Under current Women's Tennis Association rules, players who have lost ranking slots after missing time, because of injury, pregnancy or other reasons, do not get the benefit of a protected seeding at tour events, making it more hard for them to negotiate their way through the draw. However they can be altered by a committee if necessary to produce a more balanced draw, although there were no changes a year ago.

It's well worth noting that McEnroe was fairly measured in his appraisal of where Serena Williams should land with a preferential seeding, saying, "Somewhere between one and 10 - one and 16 at the worst". She wants to continue to play. Williams made her comeback in March, after taking 14-months off to give birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia.

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. "I've never played so fearless in my life and it was just. a whole new feeling". But one quality she's already noticed about her new life is her strength. "It was weird", Williams said, reflecting on her pregnancy.
