French Open organizers are wrong to stick rigidly to the WTA ranking list and not seed three-time champion Serena Williams for this year's tournament, fellow American Chris Evert said.This will be Williams' first grand slam event since winning the 2017 Australian Open when she was already pregnant.Williams could still be seeded at Wimbledon in July because the All England Club's 'tennis subcommittee' can tweak the seedings in special circumstances.Evert, who won the French Open seven times, believes the same should apply at Roland Garros and the protected ranking rule, which allows athletes returning from long absences to gain entry into tournaments using the ranking they had when they stopped playing, should extend to seedings.
