Questions and comebacks in the French Open 2018 women's singles

Ivanka Trump is not happy about the way Serena Williams was treated in the lead up to the French Open.

Venus and Serena Williams are set to feature in women's doubles at the 2018 French Open after being offered a wild card by tournament organizers on Thursday. According to Ivanka trump, it is impossible to punish someone professionally for the birth of the child. Trump said. "The #WTA should change this rule immediately".

"I think if she can keep it together mentally she would be my favourite but the problem with Halep is that because of her build and style she has to work so hard for every point", Evert said.

Azarenka is an unseeded name the top-ranked players will be hoping to avoid for as long as possible, while two-time Roland Garros champion Sharapova is seeded at a Grand Slam for the first time since testing positive for meldonium over two years ago.

The clay-court Grand Slam tournament starts on Sunday.

Williams who was the #1 seed in the world, stepped away from the sport to have a baby in September. She is simply not supposed to win this tournament. Serena who left the tour to give birth as World No. 1 has not been handed a seeding by the organisers.

The case was confirmed in Wangata, one of three health zones of Mbandaka, the capital of Equateur Province in northwestern Congo. The spread of the virus from rural areas into a city has raised fears it could quickly spread and become harder to control.

While the WTA may add protected seeding for highly ranked players who return from maternity leave, the change would likely not take effect until next year.

Last year's champion Jelena Ostapenko, double Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki and 2016 French Open victor Garbine Muguruza are all amongst the list of favourites.

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.

Russian Maria Sharapova could run into old nemesis Serena Williams in the fourth round of the French Open but, the American aside, she will fear no one on her first appearance at the claycourt slam for three years.

On the men's side, top-seeded Rafael Nadal, a 10-time champion at Roland Garros, is an overwhelming favorite and got help from the draw anyway. After all, she had lost 6-1, 6-0 against Barbora Strycova in Eastbourne previous year in her final warmup tournament before Wimbledon, then won the title at the All England Club. "So, yeah, I definitely think that would be a nice change".

Belgium's David Goffin or Australia's Nick Kyrgios could lie beyond that for the Serb, while second seed Alexander Zverev is a potential semi-final opponent.
