Simona Halep defeats Serena Williams in straight sets to win her first #Wimbledon title

Serena Williams will have to continue to chase her 24th Grand Slam title

Simona Halep defeated Williams in straight sets to win her first Wimbledon title on Saturday with a devastating 56-minute display of athleticism.




The Romanian won 6-2 6-2 in front of an incredulous Centre Court, running after everything the American threw at her.

"It was my best match," the 27-year-old said after her second Grand Slam title following her 2018 French Open success.

For 37-year-old Williams, it was a third major final defeat in 12 months.

"She played out of her mind, it was a little bit deer in the headlights for me," Williams said.

Williams, like in last year's final defeat by Angelique Kerber, seemed weighed down by public and personal expectations as she quickly fell 4-0 behind in the opening set.

Halep had said beforehand that she had no pressure on her and that is exactly how she played.

From the outset she looked relaxed and confident, attacking the Williams serve and keeping the rallies long and deep to force the American into errors.
