Halep triumphs at Wimbledon

United States' Serena Williams returns to Czech Republic's Barbora Strycova in a Women's semifinal singles match on day ten of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Thursday

Serena Williams has now lost in three Grand Slam finals since 2018 after her loss to Simona Halep at Wimbledon on Saturday, and the 23-time major victor may have a plan to solve her finals woes. Already the French Open champion of past year, she was never likely to be fazed by the occasion.

Halep blizted Williams from the off as she ran out a 6-2 6-2 victor to add the Wimbledon crown to the French Open title she won past year.

"In the meantime, I got pregnant, had a baby, so. that definitely plays a little bit into it".

"I'm very sure that was the best match of my life".

"When I was about 10, 12, she said that if I want to do something in tennis". Just stop all this insanity because she is trying to be everything. "I thank him. He is very nice", a smiling Halep told a news conference. "I wish she would just make a commitment for the next year and a half to two years and say, I'm going to absolutely focus on what's necessary for my tennis, so when I look in the mirror when I'm older, then I can go back in my mind and know I gave it everything I had". "I just told her that we'll talk later".

"You feel light, everything is handsome", she said.

As for Williams, she surely has to try and reduce the noise and whole circus around her if she is to win another Grand Slam.

While Osaka was in tears over the furore when she received her maiden grand slam trophy, Williams doesn't regret the way she acted, saying it only strengthened her resolve to keep fighting for equality.

King - who was no stranger to fighting for equality for women players when she was starting out - may feel justified after Williams was played off the court in the Wimbledon final on Saturday (July 13).

But it was Halep who wowed the fans, haring across the turf to whip a superb backhand on her way to a second break which she sealed with a flashing backhand return victor. Because if you listen to him, you get the good things.

With every minute the match went on Williams, who was short of fitness after playing seven tournaments all year, was being stretched out of her comfort zone and away from victory.

If she thought she could put down an early marker she was mistaken as three unforced errors in the opening game handed Halep an unexpected gift of an early break.

The pattern continued in the second set - with Halep's superior speed and waspish groundstrokes allowing her to get Williams's cannonballs back with interest until she had forced the error. I knew she's very emotional.

Even when she was serving for the match Halep was calmness personified. "I didn't think about the score at all".

Then in a great and wondrous rush it finally hit her. The dramas began not long after she arrived at Wimbledon.
