Halep won against Williams in two sets with scores of 6-2, 6-2, an extraordinary performance in the final which was completed in 55 minutes.


Following Saturday’s victory over Williams, world no. 7 Halep won her first Wimbledon title.

“It was my Mum’s dream for me. She said if I wanted to do something in tennis I have to play the final of Wimbledon, so today the day came,” 27-year-old Halep said.

In addition to the Wimbledon trophy, Halep bagged £2.35 million ($2.95 million) in prize money.

The 2019 Wimbledon champion, Halep previously picked up the 2018 French Open title — widely known as Roland Garros — with this year’s Wimbledon is her second grand slam achievement.

Wimbledon runner-up Williams, 37, had been looking to win her 24th grand slam title.
