Preview on Wimbledon: Serena Williams vs. Simona Halep



WIMBLEDON, England – On Saturday at Wimbledon, Serena Williams will compete against Simona Halep for the women's title and in her third final will have the chance to win a 24th Grand Slam singles championship that would set Margaret Court record.

It's been two and a half years since Williams won 23rd place at the Australian Open 2017. At this time, she was pregnant with her daughter Olympia Ohanian and played until March 2018 another tournament. Williams lost the Wimbledon final last year against Angelique Kerber, 6-3, 6-3 and last year's United States Open final against Naomi Osaka, 6-2, 6-4.

This year, 37-year-old Williams played a limited schedule due to a sustained knee injury, but looked sharper from round to round at Wimbledon.

"I think the biggest key in our matches is the defeat I had," said Williams on Thursday. "I never forgot it. She played incredibly. That lets me know at what level she played, she can do it again. So I have to be better.

After Halep lost the match 6: 1, 4: 6, 6: 4, a reporter told her, "You are number 1, and that's Serena Williams.

"Exactly," Halep replied.
