Down the memory lane: Recapping Serena Williams's seven Wimbledon titles

Serena Williams Wimbledon

Williams returned to Grand Slam action for the first time in 15 months at the French Open last month, but she remained unseeded due to her taking maternity leave a year ago, leading to many of her tennis rivals calling for a rule change.

The tournament's decision, first reported by the New York Times, comes on the heels of Serena Williams' seed at the French Open.

The tennis superstar, holder of a record 23 Grand Slam titles, refuses to deviate from her raw vegan diet, which she's known to adopt during tennis season.

"Having won so many Grand Slams and being number one for so many years, she deserves a seeding".

Those who might take umbrage with Williams receiving an exalted seeding despite her triple-digit ranking: current No. 8 Petra Kvitova, No. 16 CoCo Vandeweghe and No. 32 Dominika Cibulkova.

The Wimbledon Championships start July 2nd, and one of the most interesting stories is Serena Williams' return from pregnancy. She wants to continue to play.

Ian Malcolm, in the original franchise reprises his role briefly in the new movie " Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ". It'll likely be knocked into the #2 position by Fallen Kingdom , but it's gonna put up a solid fight.

Williams, a seven-time victor of the Wimbledon singles title, could miss out on being named as one of the 32 seeds.

John McEnroe has called on Wimbledon chiefs to take action and seed Serena Williams - at the expense of the 32nd seed. She then did not play any of the clay warm-ups until Roland Garros where she won her first three rounds before pulling out with a pectoral muscle injury before her fourth-round clash with Maria Sharapova.

"You know, I think it's great. You can never underestimate a champion like her, even though she didn't play as much", Muguruza said.

"I just don't think it's right to think that way".

Kim Clijsters won the majority of her slam titles after her pregnancy. I think it's encouraging. I don't think there would be one player that would complain, especially the top ones, if she was one of the top eight'. "But I realized everyone is different, everyone reacts differently". The pregnancy, the time away from the sport, and the recent injury are just enough to scare bettors into longish odds for Williams, and those concerns might be unfounded.
