Simona Halep won her first Wimbledon title by thrashing Serena Williams’s bid for a record-equalling 24th grand slam with a stunning 6-2, 6-2 victory.

Halep, 27, becomes the first Romanian to ever win Wimbledon and deprive the 37-year-old American of a 24th grand slam title that would have tied Margaret Court for the all-time lead.

Halep stunned her opponent, the Centre Court crowd and almost every Tennis fan to triumph in just 55 minutes of match time, displaying resourceful and so near-flawless.

Going to her first Wimbledon final, Halep was ranked world no. 7, while Williams trailed her at no. 11. Williams is a seven-time Wimbledon champion, while the final marked her first at Wimbledon for Halep, who only just won her first major tournament last year at the 2018 French Open.

The Royals were also in attendance to cheer for the ladies single in the final.

 

Last year at Wimbledon, Serena Williams lost the Ladies’ singles championship to German player Angelique Kerber.
