Serena Williams vs. Simona Halep - 7/13/19 Wimbledon Tennis Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Breaking Majors record is the reason why Serena Williams plays again-Coach

Seven-time champion Williams made short work of plucky unseeded Czech Barbora Strycova, whose experience of her first ever Grand Slams singles semi-final in her 53rd campaign lasted just under an hour as she lost 6-1, 6-2.

Williams won 15 of her 23 Grand Slams between Woods' 14th and 15th major championships.

Williams has been on the prowl for the historic title since the 2017 Australian Open, which she won shortly after learning she was pregnant.

"I love what I do". I have expectations for myself that I can do a great job on Saturday.

"I fought hard in the first set, even though I was down 4-1", Halep was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"It was not (as) easy as the score shows, " said the No. 7-seeded Halep, who compiled a 26-10 edge in winners.

After tricky moments during the fortnight - dropping sets against qualifier Kaja Juvan in round two and compatriot Alison Riske in the quarter-finals, Williams is in the groove as her biggest test looms. "We always have great matches".

"Tiger obviously, what he did at the Masters, was on top of my mind", Williams said. Her return to form in the semi-finals against Strycova was astonishing.

Since coming back from maternity leave in March 2018, she reached the Wimbledon and US Open finals previous year.

"It definitely feels good to be back in the final, especially after my year", said Williams, who only played 12 matches during an injury-ravaged 2019 season before arriving in London.

"It won't be a match Serena will feel good about - Strycova won't allow Serena to blow her away using one tactic". "Physically I just wasn't there", Williams said Thursday after easily winning her semifinal 6-1, 6-2 against Barbara Strycova.

But inside, she says, Williams isnt feeling the same pressures as she did before losing last year's Wimbledon and US Open finals to Angelique Kerber and Naomi Osaka respectively with Court's record also within touching distance.

"I'm desperate to win Wimbledon more than to stop her".

She added: "I want to focus on what I can do better".

Already the oldest grand slam champion in the open era, Williams is now also the oldest woman to make a major final.

However, Halep broke again immediately and 24-year-old Svitolina gave an indication of her increasing frustration when she netted a simple volley and lashed out, kicking the ball into the net.

Being more sure-footed on turf means the Romanian, who admits she is a lover of chocolate, ice cream and cheesecake, can not wait to turn up for Saturday's final.

The 27-year-old Romanian dashed across the court to get to Svitolina's drop shot and flashed it cross court. Within 41 days Bartoli had retired, at only 28, after losing to Simona Halep in Cincinnati, unable to stand the aggregated pain of a long career, becoming the first Wimbledon champion not to defend her title since the 1969 victor, Ann Jones.

Her competition, Halep, similarly dominated her way to the final, beating Ukrainian Elina Svitolina in straight sets 6-1, 6-3.
