Ivanka Defends Serena Williams, BLASTING WTA for Doing the UNTHINKABLE.


Ivanka Trump was not happy with Women’s Tennis Association on Thursday, lashing out at them not seeding former number one seed, Serena Williams.

The reason the WTA did not seed Williams is because she had to take 8 months off of the sport for maternity leave.

After hearing of the WTA decision not to seed Serena, Ivanka tweeted the following:

This is ridiculous. is a formidable athlete (best ever!) and loving new mother. No person should ever be penalized professionally for having a child! The should change this rule immediately. .

People magazine reports:

Ivanka Trump is passionately defending Serena Williams after the legendary tennis player is forced to head into the French Open without a seed after taking time off to have a baby.

Williams, 36, was ranked No. 1 when she left the pro tour last year to give birth to now-8-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia. Because of her 14-month hiatus, her ranking plummeted to No. 453, and French Open organizers announced they are following Women’s Tennis Association guidelines and declining to seed her for the high-profile tournament — her first major since the traumatic birth that nearly killed her.

Trump, herself a 36-year-old mother of three, spoke out on Twitter after the news was made public, and strongly denounced the decision.
