History was made after 27 year old Simona Halep became the first Romanian to win Wimbledon when she defeated Serena Williams 6-2 6-2. Halep had won 83% of her first-serve points, compared to 59% for Serena. Serena also made 26 unforced errors, while Halep made just three.
According to Forbes, It was the second Grand Slam title for Halep, who won her first Grand Slam title at the French Open in 2018. She has now won her last two Grand Slam finals after losing her first three.
Asked if she had ever played a better match, Halep said, “Never, it was the best match and of course Serena always inspired us, so thank you for that.”
