BREAKING NEWS: Serena Williams seeded 25th for Wimbledon
Serena Williams has been seeded 25th for Wimbledon despite being ranked 183rd in the world, the All England Club announced on Wednesday.
The seeding committee met on Tuesday to discuss whether the 23-time grand slam singles champion would be seeded as she works her way back up the rankings after giving birth to her first child last September.
Williams was unseeded for her major comeback at the French Open and the All England Club usually bases its seedings on the WTA ranking list.
But the legendary American is among the 32 seeds at the expense of Dominika Cibulkova.
