Tennis: Serena Williams Praises WTA For Improving Ranking Rules For New Mothers
Serena Williams has applauded the presentation of increased ranking security for new moms on the WTA Tour.
Players returning from injury or labor can take advantage of their past ranking and will be allowed to take part in twelve competitions over a 3-year time span.
Also, they would not confront a seeded player in an opening round.
The 37-year-old, Williams, was not seeded at the French Open, her first Grand Slam appearance following her arrival, yet was given a seeding of 25 for Wimbledon, in spite of being outside the main 32 in the rankings. She is currently positioned sixteenth and will be seeded for one month from now’s Australian Open.
The WTA’s standard change comes after the association peddled the conclusions of players prior in the year.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion will be in real life against sister Venus in Abu Dhabi on Thursday in her first match since September’s US Open last annihilation by Japan’s Naomi Osaka. That coordinate was eclipsed by her upheaval at seat umpire Carlos Ramos, whom she called a “liar” and “thief”.
She was docked a match for verbal maltreatment following a point punishment for racket crushing and a code infringement for coaching. She was in this way fined for her upheavals.
Serena Williams on @WTA rule changes: Having gone through the experience myself really opened my eyes up to me & ‘Would have I done it sooner had there been different rule changes?’ I don’t know. But now people don’t have to ask that question anymore?️?https://t.co/gedbZv9zdp
