Serena Williams seeded for Wimbledon, Kyrgios earns crucial bump

Serena Williams seeded for Wimbledon, Kyrgios earns crucial bump

Williams was unseeded at the French Open and looked ominous in her first grand slam since giving birth before withdrawing with a pectoral injury.

The seven-time champion, who missed last year's event while pregnant, has played only three tournaments in the past 12 months but has been handed a favorable seed by Wimbledon organizers.

The London slam has considered factors other than world ranking in the past, and the US Open announced Saturday it wouldn't penalize female players who were returning after pregnancy in seeding them. "The only rule I have at practice is to be done at 1 p.m., because as much as I love tennis, I need to be with her", Williams said. "I didn't know his world at all, but I've always been tech-savvy".

"I just think it's so important to enjoy the moment".

The Border Security And Immigration Reform Act
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the more moderate Republican bill is "a compromise with the devil". Instead, Trump has blamed the Democrats for refusing to acquiesce to his demands on immigration.

Erdoğan declares victory in Turkish presidential vote
Election turnout nationwide was very high at around 87 percent for both contests, the state broadcaster said. More than 59 million Turkish citizens, including three million living overseas , were eligible to vote .

However, respecting her curriculum and her maternity absence, organisers have chose to provide Williams with a seeding spot.

It has. Wimbledon has precedence for tweaking the seeding of several players, Williams among them. The slide resulted from a near year-long absence triggered by a freak injury, in which she stepped on broken glass and later developed blood clots in her lungs following her 2010 Wimbledon championship. Muguruza was superb a year ago, dropping just one set in seven Wimbledon matches and routing Venus Williams in the final.

The draw for Wimbledon is Friday; play begins Monday. Caroline Wozniacki, John McEnroe and USTA president Katrina Adams have spoken out in support of Williams. Dominika Cibulkova, who is ranked No32 in the world, will be the seed to miss out and she voiced her displeasure at the prospect of not being seeded in anticipation of Williams' promotion on Tuesday. "I had this sense, like, 'I'm going to marry this guy, but I'm not ready yet, but I know I'm going to marry this guy, '" she told InStyle. That, in turn, makes seeding-decisions tricky, as any tournament's seeds should reflect players' ability at the time. Also: "Kate Middleton!" Brown and Williams enjoy an amusing exchange just marveling at how Middleton emerged not too long after childbirth earlier this year, in full dress, heels and makeup, to greet the British public. Her daughter was delivered by an emergency C-section on September 1.
