SERENA Unseeded At RG

Post by Grossefavourite » May Mon 21, 2018 2:17 pm

PARIS -- Serena Williams' return to Grand Slam tennis from maternity leave just got even tougher.

French Open organizers announced on Monday they will not give Williams a seeding.

"This year again, tournament officials will establish the list and ranking of the women's seeds based on the WTA ranking,'' the French Tennis Federation said in a statement to The Associated Press. "Consequently, [the seeds] will reflect this week's world ranking.''

Williams, a three-time French Open champion, is expected to play in her first major since giving birth to her daughter in September.

They should seed the Queen. She was No. 1 when she had to take a break. Men don't have to miss a beat if they're having a kid. Roger had two sets of twins without missing a second from the tour. Gender discrimination.

They're hoping she'll knock out a couple of contenders then lose steam and lose, thus paving the way for Sharapova's tilt towards the winner's circle.

Serena will be fine. Let her play Pova in R1.
Platini said the French fudged the World Cup draw.
I have always said there is no such thing as a 100% random draw. The French will carefully select Serena's first, 2nd and 3rd round opponents. It will be done by a computer program, in the middle of the night in a dark room. :) :) :)
The nice thing is, Serena can handle it.

BTW, there is a man here who constantly invites the Sharapova bashing by never missing a chance to bash the Williams sisters. Have you been reading his posts every time a Williams loses a match?#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#If he bashes players, he can't be surprised if their fans bash his fav.#ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl# Maybe you are surprised.
