It's a big week for Serena Williams, who finds out whether she'll be seeded at Wimbledon following her 14-month hiatus from the sport.

Serena Williams will likely make her latest comeback at Wimbledon.

"I don't think there would be one player that would complain, especially the top ones, if she was one of the top eight [seeds]", McEnroe explained.

Adams didn't say where Williams would be seeded for the U.S. Open, which begins August 27, but she did say that they would "revise the seedings if pregnancy is a factor in the current rankings of a player". "Maybe not in time for me, but for the next person", Williams said.

Trump Attacks Immigration Laws, Calls For Deportations Without Trials
As anger over the policy reached its peak, Trump signed an Executive Order on June 20 to enable these families to stay together. This is not the first time Flake, who sits on the Judiciary Committee, has threatened to block Trump's judicial picks.

The Flushing Meadows grand slam will update its seeding policy to take into account a player returning from a pregnancy, according to United States Tennis Association president Katrina Adams.

Caroline Wozniacki believes the Wimbledon seeding committee will award Serena Williams a seeding on Wednesday.

Wimbledon has a specialist formula which allows them to break away from seeding players based on world ranking.

Harry Kane: 'It's all coming together for England' after Panama rout

Venus Williams is not a particularly verbose woman, yet what she lacks in loquaciousness, she makes up for in succinct power phrases. But Williams has made only a tentative return to action following complications during daughter Alexis Olympia's birth. "Why in the world would they want to play her in the first, second or third round? So I think it's important to have those rules" reviewed. "But I realized everyone is different, everyone reacts differently".

'Out of respect to my fellow competitors and to the Wimbledon Championship I will not be able to compete in good shape and in good health and I had to take a tough decision and give my back the necessary rest and treatment for the next couple of weeks'.

"I think that being pregnant actually helped me win that Grand Slam". I think it's encouraging. Because, to be honest, I feel pressure to be Serena.

Williams is admittedly still adjusting to being a working mother. It's thus clear that Serena's pregnancy situation is affecting her betting odds, which might present value. "It was this whole new strength that I actually never knew I had".
