Simona Halep Beats Serena Williams In Wimbledon Final

Simona Halep Beats Serena Williams In Wimbledon Final

Simona Halep continued her incredible form throughout Wimbledon to beat Serena Williams in straight sets to claim her first Wimbledon title, winning 6-2, 6-2.

The story ahead of Saturday's Wimbledon Women's final was whether or not Serena Williams could level Margaret Court's record of 24 singles Grand Slam titles but at the end it was all about her opponent.

Romania's Simona Halep, who had been fantastic throughout the tournament, broke Williams in the very first game of the match and she never looked back from there.


The number seven seed broke again to lead 3-0 in the first set and held her serve from there to win it 6-2 and put her more accomplished, but older, opponent on the back foot.

Williams looked better in the second set but was broken for the first time at 2-2 and then again at 4-2 to give Halep, whose only previous Grand Slam win had been the French Open in 2018, the chance to serve for the match.

The 27-year-old showed no nerves in looking to see out the match as she served out the final game, winning it to love, and rounding off an absolutely dominant performance against probably the greatest women's tennis player of all time.

After the match Williams was magnanimous in defeat saying that Halep had made her 'like a deer in headlights.'

The 37-year-old won the Australian Open in 2017 to take her record to 23 Grand Slam titles before going off on maternity leave with her first child.

Since returning the seven time Wimbledon champion has reached the final of the 2018 Wimbledon and US Open and this year's final at SW19 but is yet to get level with Margaret Court.

Halep, a former world number one, had previously only managed to reach the semi-final once at the All England Club, in 2014 when she lost to Eugenie Bouchard.

After winning the new champion was asked if it was her best ever performance, with Halep answering, "Never. It was my best match. Serena has always inspired us so thanks for that."

It was an absolutely incredible performance from the Romanian to capture her second Grand Slam title and based on how she played it won't be her last.
