Serena Williams seeded 17 at US Open, 9 spots above ranking

PV Sindhu 7th highest paid female athlete in the world: Forbes

SHUTTLER PV Sindhu is seventh on the Forbes list of highest-earning women sportspersons in the world.

The shuttler has always made India proud starting with the Silver medal in Olympics and continues to do so, being the first athlete to cover the world's highest-paid female athlete.

She faces a tricky first-round match against Svetlana Kuznetsova, whose two major championships include the 2004 U.S. Open.

This marks Serena's return to Flushing Meadows after missing the hard-court tournament in 2017 - she gave birth to her daughter last September 1.

Indeed, all of the other seeds - 32 women, 32 men - were positioned based on the WTA and ATP rankings, as usual.

Serena, a six-times champion in NY who is seeded 17th, will start her campaign against Polish world number 60 Magda Linette and could face Venus in the third round before a possible fourth-round showdown with Romanian top seed Halep.
