See the moment Simona Halep took down Serena Williams in Wimbledon final

The Duchess of Sussex arrives on day twelve of the Wimbledon Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club Wimbledon

"She said if I want to do something special in tennis I will have to play in the final of Wimbledon", she said.

She rattled off the next four points, quickly and emphatically, and with a blistering resolve.

Williams, though, hit back on Saturday. "It would be interesting to see how my knee is on the hard court".

The Romanian's 56-minute 6-2 6-2 demolition of Serena Williams earned her a second Grand Slam title. And she is a very loyal person'.

When asked about King's comments, Williams said, "The day I stop fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the day I'm in my grave". I never forgot it. She looked collected and calm throughout.

It was the seeming absence of nerves which impressed most, even if the Romanian said her stomach had been unwell before the contest. But there was never a smile. Williams simply could not respond. She was looking for her 24th Grand Slam title, which would tie Margaret Court's all-time record.

She has said the mixed doubles she played with Andy Murray helped on that front.

The veteran bellowed at herself, attempting to intimidate Halep, as she belatedly found range. "I was like a deer in headlights". Whenever a player plays like that you just have to take your hat off.

Both had magical runs to the final, as each hoped to add another chapter to their well-documented tennis stories. History isn't on Halep's side - she has a 1-9 record against Williams - but the fact that she's playing better on grass than ever before in her career should bolster her self-belief.

After falling in her last two major finals, at Wimbledon previous year and the US Open soon after, it seemed like Williams had finally hit her stride after coming back from a complicated childbirth and maternity leave. "Today", she said. "I'm very honest".

Halep didn't get that memo.

The 75-year-old told the BBC earlier in the tournament that Williams should give up being a celebrity for a year: "Just stop all this insanity".

"She literally played out of her mind". But combine that with just three unforced errors and it's easy to see why Williams had so little room to operate.

Halep joked she was most excited about securing membership at Wimbledon for life with the victory. The 27-year-old broke serve in the opening game and raced into a 4-0 lead. When she lost in the final at the French Open in 2014 and 2017, the doubters questioned her ability to stay focused when it mattered most. She would continue to do damage with the shot throughout the match.

And Williams asserted that she was happy for her then-opponent, Kerber.

"I know, like, when I do, when I play doubles here with Venus, it definitely helps my singles game". This is not the kind of background din you need when trying to win a Grand Slam. Because if you listen to him, you get the good things.
