Two break opportunities for Halep!

A cry of joy at Williams, but can she still turn the game around?

We are starting the second set! Williams serves ...

Wimbledon · 26 minutes ago

Set Halep! (1-0)

She doesn't relax and so the first set goes to Halep. The Romanian shot out of the starting blocks (0-4) and holds that margin: 2-6.

Wimbledon · 29 minutes ago

Game Williams. This service game also gets the American well. She is still looking at a 2-5 deficit. Halep will serve for set profit.

Wimbledon · one hour ago

It will be her fifth Grand Slam final for Halep. Only at Roland Garros in 2018 did she manage to grab the title. As you know, Williams has a much larger list of Grand Slam finals. The American will soon start her 32nd final battle and can take her 24th title.

Wimbledon · one hour ago

Who will win Wimbledon with women today?

  • Serena Williams
  • Simona Halep

Wimbledon · one hour ago

It will be the eleventh time that Williams and Halep face each other. The American triumphed in nine (!) Meetings. The Romanian won only at the 2014 WTA Finals. It will be the second confrontation at Wimbledon. In 2011, Williams was 3-6, 6-2 and 6-1 too strong for Halep.

Wimbledon · 2 hours ago

Serena Williams is on the London grass for the eleventh time in the final. The American has already won the tournament seven times (2016 for the last time). Halep has been a lot less successful at Wimbledon. The Romanian is in the final for the first time, after reaching the semi-finals in 2014.

Wimbledon · 2 hours ago

Serena Williams and Simona Halep will be on the run for the women's Wimbledon final in half an hour.

With Halep, Williams meets the first Romanian Wimbledon finalist ever. The current number seven in the world was four times before in the final of a Grand Slam tournament, but only managed to win Roland Garros (2018). The 27-year-old Halep lost out in nine of her last twelve WTA finals. On the basis of the previous encounters between Williams and Halep, the American does start as the top favorite in the final. The two played each other ten times before and Halep won only once; at the WTA Finals of 2014.

Last year Williams was twice close to her 24th title. The American reached the finals of Wimbledon and the US Open in 2018, but Williams fell short in both London (Angelique Kerber win) and New York (Naomi Osaka win). The last time the routinier won a Grand Slam tournament was in 2017 (Australian Open). Since then she has not won a single WTA title.

Williams can match record number of Grand Slam titles Court
Serena Williams will have a third chance in the Wimbledon final this afternoon to follow in the footsteps of tennis legend Margaret Court. With a win over Simona Halep, the 37-year-old American equaled the record number of Grand Slam titles of the now 76-year-old Australian. Court won a Grand Slam tournament in singles 24 times between 1963 and 1973, of which eleven in the open era (from May 1968). Williams has so far won the Australian Open seven times, Wimbledon seven times, six times the US Open and three times Roland Garros, and therefore has one less.
