Wimbledon: Svitolina and Ostapenko share thoughts on Serena Williams being seeded

Elina Svitolina and Jelena Ostapenko think Serena Williams should have been seeded at the French Open and also at Wimbledon. 'If you're like finished or you stopped because you're going to have a child and you will be in top eight, I think you should have this kind of thing, to have protected seeding.

She was no. 1 so she deserves seeding,' Svitolina said. The 2017 French Open champion, Ostapenko added, 'She's someone whom the tour was missing because she's a great champion. She was my idol since I was growing up.' Svitolina also spoke about Simona Halep's French Open success: 'It's amazing what she did.

It's a massive deal. It shows that you really have to fight for your dream and that is something that is really inspiring to everyone.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer admits he could skip a tournament - Full details
