Ivanka Trump Defends Serena Williams After Being Snubbed by French Open

Being Serena Serena Williams

At least, though, she won't have an early date with Halep, a possibility warned of earlier in the week by Chris Evert, the 18-time Grand Slam singles victor who also said that Williams deserved better.

Top seed and two-time runner-up Simona Halep faces Alison Riske of the United States in her opener while second seed and Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki starts against another American, Danielle Collins. However, that would not go into effect until next year.

He has to get past 19-year-old wildcard De Minaur, who has risen rapidly up the ranks to 106th over the past year but was just short of automatic qualification at Roland Garros.

Ohanian has been based in San Francisco since relocating their from Brooklyn some years ago, but he and Serena and their daughter have been spending most of their postpartum time in Florida-though signs seem to be pointing due west, at least some day.

Former world number one Novak Djokovic is seeded 20th after struggling with an elbow injury in recent months and will play a qualifier in the first round. Without a seeding, Williams was placed in the same quarter of the draw as Sharapova, who is unseeded too.

The seventh-seeded Thiem, who ended Nadal's streaks on clay of 21 wins and 50 sets won, will face a qualifier in the first round.

Spanish third seed Garbine Muguruza, who won at Roland Garros in 2016, meets another former champion in 2009 victor Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russian Federation.

Defending champion Jelena Ostapenko, seeded fifth, begins against Ukraine's Kateryna Kozlova, with fourth seed Elina Svitolina - who won the Italian Open in Rome last week - meets Australia's Ajla Tomljanovic.

"Serena Williams is a formidable athlete (best ever!) and loving new mother", Trump tweeted Thursday. She added, "Tennis is such a selfish sport, but I think when there's a child in your life you lose a little bit of that, because there's something that's so much more important".

Former champion Novak Djokovic was drawn in the same half as Thiem and Zverev.

"As it stands now, she could draw the number one player in the world at the moment", she said.
