Serena Williams seeded 25th for women’s singles at Wimbledon

The 23-time major singles champion was pregnant when Garbine Muguruza was crowned champion in South West London a year ago, but she will enter the first round next week as the 25th seed.

With Wimbledon officials indicating that they expected to seed Williams, the player most impacted by that decision - 32nd-ranked Dominika Cibulkova, who would be bumped from the seeding as a result - spoke out against it Tuesday night. I think it's just not fair. Williams welcomed her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., with husband Alexis Ohanian in September. I have the right and I should be seeded and if they put her in front of me then I will just lose my spot that I am supposed to have.

The US Open Grand Slam in NY has said it will update its seeding policy to take into account a player returning from a pregnancy.

Defending champion Garbiñe Muguruza is seeded third, with last year's runner-up Venus Williams seeded ninth.

The All England Club usually follows the women's WTA world rankings, but reserves the right to change seedings - the top 32 players in the draw.

The 2018 Wimbledon Championships seeding was announced Wednesday, as reported by BBC and ESPN, and the most notable placement may have been that of a woman whose name doesn't even appear in the Women's Tennis Association's top-32 ranking.

"Why should I not be seeded if I have the right to be?"

Her first Slam of her return came at Roland Garros where she was unseeded. She missed Wimbledon in 2017, but won the title the last two times she was in the field, in 2015 and 2016. The draw will be selected Friday, and the tournament starts Monday.

Wimbledon organisers have been accused of being set in their ways many times over the years, but the All England Club's seedings committee opted to break with the norm by promoting Williams.

"She [Serena Williams] is the greatest player to ever play the sport", Wozniacki told reporters during a grass-court tune-up earlier this week.

She reached the fourth round before pulling out shortly before her match against Russian Maria Sharapova.

At 17 after her first Grand Slam title, the U.S. Open.
