Serena to fight for equality until 'the grave'

You feel everything is handsome. Halep is a fighter, she will punch for every point from the baseline with a loud grunt of evident effort. It also fulfilled a longtime promise.

As the hunger and belief in her own ability grew after winning a championship in France, the pressure bestowed on Halep entering her first Wimbledon final against seven-time champion Williams subsided.

"She's got a baby, she's trying to help gender equity, particularly women of colour". "And the day came and my mum is here to see it".

Jul 13, 2019; London, United Kingdom; Serena Williams (USA) and Simona Halep (ROU) pose with their trophies after the women's final on day 12 at the All England Lawn and Croquet Club. "She didn't say anything because she was crying", said Halep. "I just didn't think about what is happening and where I am, I just wanted to be aggressive, to play my plan". She went down on her knees for a whole minute soon after, head bent, her forehead resting on her racket before she recovered to meet her vanquished opponent at the net. "To recognize that women of color have to work - on average - eight months longer to earn the same as their male counterparts do in one year". So today it's real and I'm really happy.

"It's something very special and I will never forget this day because it was my mom's dream". I have so much to look forward to. "I started to feel safe on court, which helped me a lot to believe".

The 27-year-old has now added a second Slam title to her French Open triumph last year. Such setbacks would have crushed many, but instead it only strengthened her resolve.

While Meghan Markle attended last weekend with friends to watch Serena Williams's match, she joined her sister-in-law Kate Middleton and Kate's sister Pippa on Saturday. She has lost three consecutive Grand Slam finals. She spoke after her semifinal victory about trying to remain calm on court, and that she did, even in the face of a player who was at her very best. You can get nervous, too nervous.

Williams led 2-1 but Halep's scampering was making her play an extra shot in every rally, many of which were wild ones. Wimbledon was stunned, but not as half as much as Williams.

'Ilie, thank you for coming, you're supporting me all match, ' she said for good measure.

King later said on Twitter that she would "never ask anyone to stop fighting for equality", in reference to Williams's comment.

"She's an inspiration for everyone and the model for everyone".

Halep received those comments and said she will take them on board for future reference in more grand slam finals. "That's why I was able to play my best, to be relaxed, and to be able to be positive and confident against her".

She is Romania's first Wimbledon singles champion. She might not have even blinked. "I looked at the scoreboard". When a player plays that incredible then you have to take your hat off and say well done. I think I have the feeling. Across from where the great American was seated was Romanian Simona Halep, all smiles, eyes brighter than the London summer sky.
