Serena eyes first Wimbledon as mother

Serena Williams isn't likely to face the same seedings issue at the US Open as she did at the French Open.

She said: "I think Wimbledon will make the right choice and I think they will seed her".

"I think and I hope - and it should be under review - to change these rules". Williams was ranked No. 1 before giving birth; she is now ranked No. 183. "I've never played so fearless in my life, and it was just...a whole new feeling".

President Donald Trump spoke during a roundtable at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday. In a series of tweets today, Trump said: "We can not allow all of these people to invade our Country".


The French Open decided against it and received waves of criticism, though many offered a defence that it would be unfair on the player who had worked all year to position herself as the 32nd seed only to be booted out and miss out on a spot. She's listed at +600 on the odds sheet, but she's playing well this year (having won the Birmingham Classic just last weekend) and is maybe a safer pick than some of the other favorites.

The seeding meeting is due to take place on 26 June. "I get it. I would not want to be the number 32 player in the world who has worked hard in the past year to obtain this ranking", said Adams, herself a former player.

John McEnroe and Serena Williams don't share the greatest of the bonds. This was one of a clutch of strangely lacklustre all-Williams finals that played a role in the public's apathy.

Gary Neville on 'real deal' Harry Kane and England's approach to Belgium
He clearly had not reckoned on either just how good Belgium and England would be or perhaps quite how bad Tunisia and Panama are. You go out there to win a game - the other bits are nonsense".


Williams welcomed her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., with her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, in September. That's me coming from a different viewpoint'. I don't think I would've won if I was not pregnant.

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

Briefly: not great. She lost early at Indian Wells and Miami, losing to Venus Williams at Indian Wells in the third rounding and losing in the first round to Naomi Osaka in Miami. That's why I gave my daughter the trophy. "I know it's going to be so important to go back, it's going to be an unbelievable feeling to go on the court again and just remember a little bit the feelings from previous year", Muguruza added.

Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard star as Belgium rout Tunisia
Unless Panama beat England in Sunday's Group G match, Belgium will be through with a game to spare while Tunisia will be out. Hazard then ran on to a long pass in the 51st minute, flicked the ball around Ben Mustapha and shot into an empty net.


"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".
