Serena, Halep roll, advance to Wimbledon final

Serena, Halep roll, advance to Wimbledon final

Yes, of course she can.

That's why she puts in all the work. Also, she needs to not think about the magnitude of what she can accomplish with a victory.

Williams will be aiming for her 24th Grand Slam singles title, which would tie Margaret Court for the all-time record.

Stanley Kay: Halep is just 1-9 against Williams over her career, and that one win came in a round-robin at the 2014 WTA Finals.

Halep said: "I'm in a good position".

This will be her third Grand Slam final appearance since she returned to courts from giving birth.

Romania's Simona Halep celebrates winning a point against Ukraine's Elina Svitolina in a Women's semifinal singles match on day ten of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London, Thursday, July 11, 2019.

Williams has an impressive slew of titles under her belt, with 23 grand slam titles compared to Halep's one.

"I thought about it this morning", she said. I play this game with dignity, and I love the sport. "It's first time when I say that".

"The biggest key with our matches is the loss that I had".

After a three-set struggle against Alison Riske in the quarterfinals Tuesday, Williams was at her dominant best against Strycova, who appeared limited by some sort of issue with her right leg.

The semifinal's turning point came quickly.

The latter descended into chaos after Williams was penalized a game for a heated argument with the chair umpire.

The runaway was on: Williams seized seven points in a row and 16 of 20 to close out that set. Nothing was going to help her slow down Williams on this afternoon, and the match was over after 59 minutes. Within 41 days Bartoli had retired, at only 28, after losing to Simona Halep in Cincinnati, unable to stand the aggregated pain of a long career, becoming the first Wimbledon champion not to defend her title since the 1969 victor, Ann Jones.

The other semi-final features the same script: a grand slam champion against a first-time semi-finalist. Halep will try to test Williams's movement, but she won't be able to do that if Williams starts hitting winners off Halep's second serve.

"Serena has to be tired to take some of the sting out of her serve".

"Now (Barb0ra) is at the top of her game", Strycova's coach Lukas Dlouhy said. "She was moving really good, striking the ball perfectly".

Williams won her 23rd Grand Slam title in Australia two and a half years ago, and since has married and become a mother. The younger American, who prefers grass, brought her A-game against the veteran to force a tight and tense three-setter. Halep has never played in a Wimbledon final.

By then, she was in control.

Now comes a tougher task: beating Williams. "I'm really excited - and also nervous - because of this (first Wimbledon final)". "But now I feel stronger, mentally, facing her". We will see what is going to happen.

Set 2 was more of the same as Strycova was visibly in pain and even let a pair of screams out on Centre Court.
