  • Wozniacki calls for Serena seeding at Wimbledon

The American didn't drop a set in the entire tournament and Russian 21st seed Zvonareva, playing in her first Grand Slam final, was no match. Upon her return to the court for the French Open, Williams found herself at No. 453 in the Women's Tennis Association rankings, with the French Tennis Federation denying her a seeding.

Speaking to ITV News, author of Eat Sweat Play Anna Kessel said that sport can be a "hostile place for mothers". "It's OK to go out and be a woman and become a mother and then come back to your job and I think that's a bigger message". "You can never underestimate a champion like her, even though she didn't play as much", Muguruza said.

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

Serena Williams appears at an event to launch a national street art campaign with Allstate Foundation Purple Purse to make domestic violence and financial abuse visible, at TicTail Market, June 20, 2018, in NY.

Serena Williams was unseeded at the French Open last month due to an extended absence for the birth of her first child but she is not likely to face the same problem at the U.S. Open.

Iceland's final group stage match is against Croatia on Tuesday, June 26 at 20:00 SA time. Musa is now the first Nigerian player to score a brace in two FIFA World Cup matches.

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".

Williams welcomed her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., with her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, in September.

Serena Williams says there are records she still wants to break - and she's ready to put in the hard work to do it. "On that level, Roland Garros was fantastic because she started not competing great because she had not competed for so long", he explained.

John McEnroe has called on Wimbledon chiefs to take action and seed Serena Williams - at the expense of the 32nd seed. That's me coming from a different viewpoint'.

- Aged 20, Serena already had two Grand Slam titles under her belt, but winning her first Wimbledon crown, at the expense of her sister Venus, was her true breakthrough moment. "I don't think I would've won if I was not pregnant", she said.
