The Williams sisters were dominant in the sport a number of years ago but while sister Venus faded a little bit, Serena kept at the top level for a while until she took maternity leave in January 2017. "So the people will decide what seed she will get".
The bottom half is anchored by second-seeded German Alexander Zverev and former world No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia - the last man to defeat Nadal at Roland Garros in the 2015 quarter-finals.
Though she has only played in two WTA tournaments since her return - winning two matches and losing two - and has not played competitively on clay since losing in the French Open final in 2016, Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou is still confident the American can clinch a fourth French Open title.
The French Tennis Federationsaid in a statement that: "This year again, tournament officials will establish the list and ranking of the women's seeds based on the WTA ranking". "The WTA should change this rule immediately", Trump tweeted. Maria Sharapova, a noted rival, said "It's such an incredible effort for a woman to come back from physically, emotionally".
"It's normal to give birth".
Her ranking was protected during maternity leave, enabling her to enter the French Open.
Serena had a tough time giving birth. If you are forced out for a specific reason, whether it be maternity or injury, you need to be protected.
"She was number one so she deserves seeding."
Williams has won the French Open, which takes place from 27 May to 10 June, three times.
That means the 23-time grand slam victor could meet World No.1 Simona Halep in the first round at Roland Garros, for example.
"After her pregnancy, Serena had to rebuild her body", Mouratoglou added. Another familiar face back in the draw: Victoria Azarenka, who gave birth to a son previous year. Having suffered a pulmonary embolism in 2011, she recognized similar symptoms the next day and alerted doctors at her hospital in West Palm Beach, Fla.
The decision not to seed Williams has attracted criticism from players past and present but at least at Wimbledon the same dilemma is unlikely to arise if Williams, seven-time champion on the grass, plays this year, whatever her ranking.
