What channel is Wimbledon on? Serena Williams vs

The Wimbledon triumph was Alcott's ninth major singles win, with tournament officials describing the achievement as the "Dylan Slam".

Williams falls to 9-3 all-time against the 27-year-old Halep.

That was one more than Williams in her clash with Barbora Strycova but Halep was a step up from her previous opponents, and she showed that immediately. She didn't merely play defense, though, managing to go from retrieving an apparent point-ending stroke by Williams to lashing a victor of her own in a blink. You just can't play average at Wimbledon finals, some people might do that.

"Hopefully I can raise the level of my game sometimes".

Halep finally cracked the grass-court code here this year.

Williams has already entered uncharted territory.

She hasn't won a title of any sort since the 2017 Australian Open, when she was pregnant.

Although she didn't end up winning on Saturday, Williams made history before the final even started.

Serving at 76%, Halep delivered one good hold after another, mounting the pressure on Williams and outplaying her in every department with smart and measured tennis to lift the biggest trophy in a career so far.

The 23-time grand slam victor, 37, was responding to recent comments made by American former World No. 1 professional tennis player Billie Jean King, 75, and others. "I just came out on court on gave my best". "I always play well when I have emotions".

I never thought. I'm very honest. "That's really all you can do".

"She's not going to hide it - she just has to deal with it".

"I said at the start of the tournament that one of my motivations was to win and become a lifetime member of the club".

Williams was also today asked about her relationship with Meghan Markle, who she has been friends with since 2010 when they met at a Super Bowl party. She had to pull out of the 2014 Rogers Cup due to a knee injury. Especially on the hard courts.

Williams lost to Angelique Kerber in last year's Wimbledon final and lost to Naomi Osaka in the championship match at the US Open.

But being a favorite is nothing new for Williams.

Displaying no outward signs of anxiety or tension in her first Wimbledon final, Halep played lights out from the get-go, stunning Williams with a baseline barrage to charge ahead 4-0 inside 12 minutes.

"I think if I overdo it, then that could also be a problem, as well", Williams said.

Romania's Simona Halep celebrates after defeating United States' Serena Williams during the women's singles final match on day twelve of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London, Saturday, July 13, 2019. "It'll be interesting to see how it'll be under different circumstances, so I can't say that I have a lot of tension".
