The former world No 1 is now ranked 183rd and was unseeded at the French Open, meaning she faced a hard route through the competition.

"I just don't think it's right to think that way". She's the greatest player to ever play the sport. The dominant 23-time major champion Williams was unseeded at the French Open following the birth of her first child in September. She'll need some matches before she's totally up to speed, and unfortunately the pectoral injury denied her a few valuable matches against top players. 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.
Williams, made her return to the tour in March at Indian Wells and Miami, following the birth of her daughter.
Meanwhile, John McEnroe has also called on Williams to be seeded, despite the impact it would have on the No 32 player in the world. Why in the world would they want to play her in the first, second, third round?

The aspects of her game that made her a great grass-court player early in her career have been gone for an very bad long time, as she still struggles to serve with pace and consistency.
Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova occupies the 32nd seeded place and would miss out should the Wimbledon higher authorities decide to intervene which they have every right to do.
"You know, I think it's great". Because I think ten years from now I think more and more players will want to have families and then coming back.
How's Serena Williams' return going so far? "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.
