Ivanka Trump showed her support for pro-tennis player Serena Williams.

The President's daughter took to social media to voice her opinion on how she feels "the best ever" athlete is being penalized for having a child.

As reported by cnn.com

Washington (CNN)Ivanka Trump is serving up her support for Serena Williams, calling on the Women's Tennis Association to change a rule that prevented the tennis star from getting a seeding at the upcoming French Open.

"This is ridiculous," Trump tweeted, linking to an article about the controversy.

She continued, "@SerenaWilliams is a formidable athlete (best ever!) and loving new mother. No person should ever be penalized professionally for having a child! The #WTA should change this rule immediately. #FrenchOpen."

Returning to the French Open for the first time since giving birth to a baby girl last September, Williams is currently ranked No. 453 in the WTA rankings, making her road to a fourth French Open championship difficult. Before her pregnancy, she was ranked No. 1.
