U.S. Open to alter its seeding protocol for pregnancies

But weighing in on the debate whether Williams should be seeded at the upcoming Wimbledon Championships, McEnroe didn't shy away from speaking up in her favour.

That's me coming from a different viewpoint.' McEnroe added that Serena's colleagues would not be opposed to it: 'I don't think there would be a player that would complain, especially the top ones, if she was one of the top eight.

Her WTA ranking fell from No. 1 at the time of her 2017 Australian Open win to No. 183, and Williams went unseeded at Roland Garros.

"She s Serena Williams and she can play incredible".

The champion that Venus is, she has never used her illness as an excuse.

John McEnroe has called on Wimbledon chiefs to take action and seed Serena Williams - at the expense of the 32nd seed. "⅛Williams⅜ is the most high-profile one".

The US Open will start considering pregnancy situations when making seedings so players aren't penalised for starting families, US Tennis Association president Katrina Adams said in a report in The New York Times on Saturday. Williams also moved past Billie Jean King to sixth in the all-time list of female Grand Slam singles champions with 13 major titles.

"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. Radwanska made a fight of it, winning a rain-delayed second set. But the seeding question lies in the hands of the All England Club. "I can't even describe it". I think she deserves to be seeded.

Regardless, the four Grand Slams are not beholden to WTA policies in seeding their fields. "No offense. You're talking about Serena'".

- Serena's seventh Wimbledon triumph gave her an historic 22nd Grand Slam title, equalling Steffi Graf's Open era record. Upon returning to the women's field in the summer, the three-time French Open victor slid to No. 453 in the Women's Tennis Association rankings, with the French Tennis Federation denying her a seeding.
