Wait goes on for Williams as inspired Halep wins Wimbledon

Simona Halep poses with the trophy as she celebrates after winning the final against Serena Williams at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London

Romania's Simona Halep hugs U.S. player Serena Williams after beating her during their women's singles final on day twelve of the 2019 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, on July 13, 2019.

Halep blizted Williams from the off as she ran out a 6-2 6-2 victor to add the Wimbledon crown to the French Open title she won past year.

The win marked Halep's second major singles title - she previously won the the French Open in 2018.

"I have to play the final of Wimbledon so the day came, so to my mom, thanks".

An inspired Halep took full advantage of an error-strewn display by the 37-year-old American to become the first Romanian to win the Wimbledon title.

During a press conference after her match against champion Simona Halep on Saturday, a reporter asked Williams about comments made by fellow tennis icon Billie Jean King that Williams should put her activism aside and focus on tennis.

Williams, who has now lost three Grand Slam finals since returning to the Tour last March following the birth of daughter Olympia in September 2017, was short of ideas and the match ended after 56 minutes when she biffed a forehand into the net - her 26th unforced error. You can get intimidated by the moment. She has lost three consecutive Grand Slam finals.

"I'm very sure that was the best match of my life", said Halep. Before taking her seat, she had some royal duties to attend to, meeting with some of the junior players from Russia, Latvia and France.

'She's the sweetest person you can meet, I'm very happy for her. I was really hoping to get this far.

Super 30 earns Rs 11 crore on its first day
Says a source, "Aditya Chopra was clear that nothing about the film should get out before the first official asset comes out". Super 30's box office collection is perhaps an indicator of how the movie is likely to perform in the coming days.

"Feels good", Halep smiled as she tapped her newly minted, purple All England Club members' badge.

Until this year, she had never got beyond the semi-finals at Wimbledon while a last-four run in 2015 remains her best performance at the US Open. The result: Williams steamrolled Strycova, giving Mair's followers two easy cashes.

Williams admitted she was beaten by the better player on Centre Court. But I knew there was no time for emotions.

Williams owns seven Wimbledon titles, so she knows how to win in London. "You can get nervous, too nervous", she said. "It was a little bit deer in the headlights for me".

Add in the fact that she had fired down 45 aces and won 83 percent of her service games to reach the final and it seemed as if it was game on for Williams to hoist the Venus Rosewater Dish for an eighth time.

Mair is confident he has the Williams vs. Halep victor, plus he's going big on how many sets it lasts.

"Someone told me I shouldn't look at the records anymore". "I just didn't think about what is happening and where I am, I just wanted to be aggressive, to play my plan".

Simona Halep is the 2019 Wimbledon ladies champion!
