Simona Halep defeats Serena Williams in Wimbledon final today

Simona Halep defeats Serena Williams in Wimbledon final today

It is Halep's second grand slam triumph following her 2018 French Open, while Williams has lost three consecutive finals from her appearances in the Wimbledon and US Open finals past year.

"I think it's a great feeling to face Serena in a Grand Slam final". All Halep cared about was winning her first at the All England Club. And she played pretty much perfectly.

She's 37 and a mom, but Serena Williams says she is inspired by other veteran sports stars such as Roger Federer and Tiger Woods as she chases a record-equaling 24th grand slam title.

"She played out of her mind. No matter what I do, I will always have a great career".

How good was the No. 7-seeded Halep? "That's the only reason I'm able to compete", Williams told reporters after her semifinal win against unseeded Barbora Strycova. But Court won 13 of her major trophies before professionals were admitted to Grand Slam tournaments, while all 23 of Williams' major titles have come in the Open era, which began in 1968.

"Well, I had nerves".

"I was calm today", she said. So I will try just to give my best.

Couldn't have been any better, really.

Williams is facing an uphill battle - her last Grand Slam title came in 2017 at the Australian Open. Williams insists she's not focused on Margaret Court's record of 24. The two have not squared off at Wimbledon since 2011 when Williams survived three sets in a second-round matchup.

"Just got to keep fighting", Williams said, "and just keep trying".

The final clash between Serena Williams vs Simona Halep will take place on Saturday, July 13, 2019.

Halep tracked down everything, as is her wont.

Serena stands close to the baseline for her return, which makes the body serve more effective because she has less time to get out of the way. The 27-year-old Romanian also dominated on her first serve, winning 82% of her first serve points, and she only faced one break point the entire match. I use the slice more. I understand that it's what a lot of people know her for. Williams' greatest show of emotion came after she stretched for a forehand volley victor on the second set's second point.

Williams was undone by 26 unforced errors to Halep's two.

Halep only had been as far as the semifinals once at Wimbledon until now. "It was one of my motivations before this tournament". It's not like I'm happy to be in the finals, and it's Serena and there's no chance.
