Romania’s Simona Halep defeated seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams in the women’s singles final of the Wimbledon 2019. Halep ousted the 37-year-old American in straight sets (6-2, 6-2) in a match which lasted for only 56 minutes.
The 27-year-old became the first-ever Romanian to claim the Wimbledon title. It was Halep’s second Grand Slam title, having won the French Open last year. The result denied Williams from equaling Margaret Court’s all-time record of winning 24 Grand Slam singles titles.
