Serena return will keep us on our toes, says Wozniacki

Former world number one Williams, now ranked a lowly 453, will be playing a Grand Slam for the first time since her victory at the 2017 Australian Open, after which she stepped off the tour to give birth to her daughter in September. "I'm thinking just of my first match".

This year, the third-ranked Muguruza and Williams could meet in the quarterfinals.

World No 2, Caroline Wozniacki has said Serena Williams' comeback to the French Open will put pressure on the current top-ranked players.

Wozniacki finally claimed her first major title this year, and admitted that it has lifted a weight off her shoulders.

Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova insisted on Friday that the French Open was right not to hand Serena Williams a special seeding for the event. Sharapova served a 15-month sanction for testing positive for heart drug meldonium after losing to Williams in the Australian Open quarter-finals in 2016.

An unseeded Serena Williams drew world No. 70 Kristyna Pliskova on Thursday for the first round of the French Open.

Right from the off the drama will unfold with a first-round clash between 2016 champion and third seed Garbine Muguruza and 2009 victor Svetlana Kuznetsova - a match that will set the tone for what promises to be a compelling women's tournament.

But the elegant and powerful Muguruza is not anxious.

"This year again, tournament officials will establish the list and ranking of the women's seeds based on the WTA ranking", the French Tennis Federation said in a statement to The Associated Press.

"It stays less in your system like before, for sure", she said about her poor performance in Rome. I'm stronger mentally. I think I have worked a lot and improved.

After beating Williams in the 2016 final, Muguruza's title defense was ended in the fourth round past year by local favorite Kristina Mladenovic of France in front of a partisan crowd at Court Suzanne Lenglen. Many of her fellow tennis players have spoken out that something needs to changed when it comes to taking time off to have a baby.

Lucie Safarova/Bethanie Mattek-Sands, the defending champions, were another pair set to play with different partners this year.
