John Mc Enroe gives bold verdict about Serena Williams' Wimbledon seeding

John Mc Enroe gives bold verdict about Serena Williams' Wimbledon seeding

The Wimbledon Championships start July 2nd, and one of the most interesting stories is Serena Williams' return from pregnancy. I don't think there would be one player that would complain, especially the top ones, if she was one of the top eight'.

'I just don't think it's right to think that way.

Williams beat seeded players in the second and third rounds of the French Open earlier this summer before being forced to withdraw from the tournament because of a pectoral injury so severe that she said she couldn't serve properly. Looking towards King in the Centre Court Royal Box afterwards, Williams said: "Hey Billie, I got you, it's number 13 for me". 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. "Maybe she's 25 and she wants to have a baby, but she doesn't want her career to be over".

Wimbledon officials take other factors into consideration and have the leeway to grant her a seeded place when the list is announced on Wednesday. Williams will use a protected ranking to enter Wimbledon, but their seedings committee will decide this week whether she should be included among the top 32 in the draw. Five-times champion and 2017 runner-up, Venus Williams, now 38, is all but certain to be competing because of her strong showing throughout 2017.

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

"I think that being pregnant actually helped me win that Grand Slam". "But I realized everyone is different, everyone reacts differently".

"I think so [on Williams going far]". 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.

Williams is admittedly still adjusting to being a working mother.

"I mean, I knew I was strong, but I feel like my threshold for pain went out like the roof and nothing really bothered me". It's thus clear that Serena's pregnancy situation is affecting her betting odds, which might present value.
