Simona Halep beats Serena Williams to win first Wimbledon title

Simona and Williams

Simona Halep produced a superb display in her first Wimbledon final win the title and deny Serena Williams a chance of her 24 trophy.

The 27-year-old’s 6-2 6-2 victory makes her the first Romanian to win a singles title at the All England Club and added to the French Open crown she claimed last summer.

This is the third time since Williams’ return last spring from the birth of her daughter that she has been one victory away from finally equalling Margaret Court’s all-time record for slam singles titles.

But, as she had against Angelique Kerber here 12 months ago and Naomi Osaka in New York, Williams once again fell short, seemingly unable to put thoughts of history out of her mind.
