Serena Williams was at the top of her game last year when she discovered her pregnancy, and even though she was already in her third trimester, she won her 23rd Grand Slam Open title without flinching. Now, after a year of maternity leave, the obsolete rules of the WTA are playing against her, but she keeps on looking up.


Celebritist was lurking around Serena Williams’ Instagram account to see how the tennis player, wife, and mother has been doing after the French Tennis Association released a statement that is undoubtedly going to affect her position in the upcoming French Open, and despite everything, she seems to be doing fine.


The beauty recently shared a stunning mirror selfie looking gorgeous and gym-ready in an all-black tight outfit that enhances her best assets as she showed off her new Nike shoes while in France.


Williams gave birth to her first daughter, Alexis Olympia, in September last year, and after going through a smooth pregnancy and delivery, she had a health scare after doctors found out she had some blood clots and needed another surgery.


Serena spent the first six weeks of motherhood on bed rest, but she was able to stand on her own in time to celebrate her dream-like wedding to Reddit CEO Alexis Ohanian. However, her physical condition was affected by the pregnancy and its consequences, and she has been training harder than ever in order to regain her shape and condition.

On her HBO docu-series, “Being Serena,” she has been sharing with fans her whole journey since she found she was having a baby until she started to train daily to make her come back into the tennis court early this year.


But it seems like her efforts will go to waste, as the French Tennis Federation recently said through a statement that

“This year again, tournament officials will establish the list and ranking of the women's seeds based on the WTA ranking. Consequently, (the seeds) will reflect this week's world ranking.”


Serena, who was number 1 before her maternity leave, is now resting on the 453 spot, which leaves her unseeded and ready to face some stiff competition from top-seeded players early on in the competition.

This, of course, could affect her performance, since she’ll be facing that, unlike her, haven’t stopped their rhythm and have been playing constantly while she was on rest.


Even though the federation is currently discussing new rules that will protect high ranked players that are returning to the game after maternity leave or serious injuries, the changes will most likely be put on effect next year.

The French Open will start soon and Serena is more than ready to prove she still has what it takes to be the number one player in the world.
