Serena Williams has been seeded 25th for the women's singles tournament at Wimbledon, the All England Club has announced.

Williams, who gave birth to her first baby in September, is now ranked No. 183.

Williams, who has won 23 Grand Slam titles during her career, was unseeded at the French Open. "I don't think there would be a player that would complain, especially the top ones, if she was one of the top eight", he said.

"Why should I not be seeded if I have the right to be?" I think it's just not fair.

He said the company has been working with Twitter to see if the tweets could be removed and to figure out where they originated. Trump then threatened the company "will be taxed like never before" if they follow through with the move .

"I don't think it's the right thing to do", Cibulkova told the BBC before the seedings were released.

The 36-year-old American is continuing her return to action after giving birth to her first child, Olympia, in September 2017.

The draw for Wimbledon will take place on Friday.

One of them, Slovakian former Australian Open finalist Dominika Cibulkova, is the player most disadvantaged by the decision to seed Williams, as she is 32nd in the rankings and would have taken the last seeded spot.

Coach Joachim Loew said the goal is to make sure the mistakes that happened against Mexico are not repeated against Sweden. Belgium scored three times in the first half, and both Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard finished the game with two goals .

But the American has been slotted in between Maria Sharapova and Australia's Daria Gavrilova for Wimbledon after tournament officials decided the former victor deserved to be seeded.

Simona Halep is No. 1 in the women's draw, with defending champion Garbine Muguruza at No. 3 behind Caroline Wozniacki.

The men's seeds show a few tweaks from the ATP rankings with Wimbledon using a formula created to take into account results on grasscourts. 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. "She wants to continue to play".

Last weekend, U.S. Open President and CEO Katrina Adams said that it would definitely seed Williams for the season's final major, acknowledging that the formula for doing so had yet to be determined. She goes into the tournament in good form after lifting the trophy in Birmingham last weekend although a hamstring injury forced a withdrawal from Eastbourne on Wednesday. "Maybe not in time for me, but for the next person", she said.
