An All England Club spokeswoman said: “The seeding order follows the WTA ranking list except where, in the opinion of the committee, a change is necessary to produce a balanced draw."
“Therefore it is reasonable to state that the committee would have the discretion to seed a player for the championships, regardless of their WTA ranking. This discussion would take place at the seeding meeting on 26 June.”
Since giving birth last year, Serena Williams has dropped to 449th in the WTA rankings. Our fingers are crossed that she will be seeded to play at Wimbledon.
