Simona Halep stunned Serena Williams to claim her first Wimbledon title for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title with a devastating 56-minute display of athleticism on Saturday.

Simona Halep won in straight sets by 6-2 6-2.

It is the 27-year-old former world number one’s second Grand Slam title after her 2018 French Open success. For 37-year-old Williams, it was a third major final defeat in 12 months.
