Williams versus Halep in Wimbledon women’s final

Serena Williams reacts to being fined by Wimbledon Serena, Halep roll, advance to Wimbledon final

In 33-year-old Grand Slam semi-final debutant Strycova, she was facing a player she had met three times before without dropping a set. She's won her last four matches in straight sets and just dismantled the No. 8 player in the world with stunning ease. She battles Simona Halep in the 2019 Wimbledon final at 9 a.m. EDT Saturday in London.

Halep will face either seven-time champion Serena Williams or unseeded Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic for the title on Saturday.

Now she is returned to another statistical hell - or heaven, if she wins: victory on Saturday would give Williams her eighth Wimbledon singles title and her 24th major, matching the Australian Margaret Court for the most slams in the history of the sport.

The crowd were willing Strycova to hang in for a little longer and roared their approval when she showed great defensive skills to win the first point as Williams served for the match - the 54th-ranked Czech raising her arms in salute.

But the three-time grand slam victor wasn't done just yet and after successful surgery, the 32-year-old made a glorious return to Wimbledon this year.

In the end, her resistance lasted for around four games before having the wind taken from her sails after Williams capitalized on a botched chip shot. Yes, of course she can.

World Number three, Roger Federer emphasized having the tough mental strength and giving her best in every single moment of the match.

"It's really not about 24 or 23 or 25". It's not like I'm happy to be in the finals, and it's Serena and there's no chance. "I never forgot it", said the 11th seed, who is also bidding to become the first mother to triumph at Wimbledon since Australian Evonne Goolagong beat American Chris Evert in 1980.

"I'm desperate to win Wimbledon more than to stop her", said Halep, who has pushed Williams to a deciding third set in all three of their matches in a Grand Slam.

"I just feel like we know so much more about our bodies".

"I think technology has really changed", said Williams, who at 37 years of age and 291 days is the oldest Grand Slam finalist in the modern era. His extended period of failing to compete made his sudden emergence all the more dramatic, but Serena almost died a couple years ago and deserves the same - if not more - unbridled enthusiasm when she wins her next Grand Slam, whenever that may be.

The Romanian won the French Open past year and has reached the final at Roland Garros on two other occasions.

"I thought about it this morning", she said. For the last few rounds, she's been indomitable.

And she was not going to spoil that record here, establishing breaks in the fourth and sixth games before taking the set with her 44th ace of the championships.

Strycova would repeatedly flex or shake her legs between points or try to stretch in her sideline chair by pulling her right foot onto her left knee and rocking her leg. I feel like she's back. Even on Halep's serve, Williams needs to play aggressively and use her superior power to control points.

"To even be in those two finals previous year was unbelievable", Williams said. Now ranked 10th in the world at 37 years old, Williams already has the record for most in the open era after her most recent major win, the 2017 Australian Open.
