Wozniacki calls for Serena Williams seeding at Wimbledon
‘Having won so many Grand Slams and being number one for so many years, she deserves a seeding’
Caroline Wozniacki: “She’s (Serena Williams) the greatest player to ever play the sport.”
Williams, a seven-time winner of the Wimbledon singles title, could miss out on being named as one of the 32 seeds after she took maternity leave for the birth of her first child. The American, now ranked 181st, was unseeded at the French Open.
“She’s (Serena Williams) the greatest player to ever play the sport,” Denmark’s Wozniacki said after her straight sets victory over Italian Camila Giorgi at the Eastbourne championships.
“Having won so many Grand Slams and being number one for so many years, she deserves a seeding.”
Grand Slam events generally award seedings based on rankings, which are not protected for injury or pregnancy in the WTA.
