Wimbledon 2019 Final: How to Watch Serena Williams vs

Simona Halep- Wimbledon 2019- Getty

Simona Halep torpedoed Serena Williams's latest bid to capture a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam on Saturday when she stormed to a sensational victory in a 56-minute Wimbledon final. Simona Halep has nearly none of the pressure on her shoulders heading into her first Wimbledon final, and for Williams, that's a risky thing - Halep is at her best when she can play freely.

This is Serena's 3rd Grand Slam loss in a row. The 37-year-old dismantled Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic in the semifinal to set up a final against Romania's Simona Halep.

Williams also lost in straight sets against Angelique Kerber in the Wimbledon final a year ago, and against Naomi Osaka at the U.S. Open last September.

Williams is already considered the greatest in her sport with or without Court's record, but she has stated that reaching that magic number remains a goal. The 27-year-old Romanian also dominated on her first serve, winning 82% of her first serve points, and she only faced one break point the entire match. Halep defeated Williams 6-2, 6-2 on Centre Court for her second major title.

Williams will play for her eighth Wimbledon title.

With most of its competition having a single-digit monthly price tag, It's already a tough sell even with all those movies. HBO Max will also have exclusive streaming rights to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Pretty Little Liars .

"I have a better game these days". It's not just me, it's Roger [Federer], Tom Brady, Peyton [Manning] played forever. "Yeah, I didn't have the preparation coming into Wimbledon of training for two weeks, even".

Halep tends to get down on herself during crucial moments in a game and lose her temper when she most needs to maintain her composure. "My stomach was not very well before the match, but I knew there was not time for emotions".

She added: "Just trying to tap into that younger Serena, trying to tap into how to win, basically". Of course, I respect a lot what she has done and what she's doing. According to The Sun, the French Open junior champion was born with size 34DD breasts, which she says got in the way of her movement on the court. "It was a little bit of deer in the headlights for me". It's really just about going out there and giving my best effort no matter what.

"I'm desperate to win Wimbledon more than to stop her", she said. But more than anything, the fact that she is playing without any pain in the injured knee that has hampered her for much of the season and kept her extremely low on match play (she had just 12 matches under her belt before the fortnight) has made the difference.
