Serena Williams loses the Wimbledon final and is still resisting Court's record

Simona Halep can already boast of having two Grand Slams, in addition to the opposites: the ground one in Roland Garros, which won in 2018, and from now on the Wimbledon grass, in which final swept Serena Williams (6-2 and 6-2) in just 57 minutes. The Romanian became part of the "curse of Margaret Court" that has been pursuing Serena for some time. The American has conquered 23 Grand Slams and is one to match the absolute record of the Australian, but there is no way. The last time the youngest of the Williams won one of the big four was in Australia 2017. After that she got pregnant and could not play the other three "majors" of that course nor Australia the next.

Five months after giving birth, in a delivery that was about to cost her life, as she admitted herself, he went back to the tracks. In Roland Garros of 2018 he lost in eighths. It was logical: it is not your land and still lacked filming. After: Wimbledon 2018: lost the final against Kerber clearly (6-3 and 6-3) and lost the final of the United States Open before the young Osaka also of unappealable form (6-2 and 6-4) in the famous party in which she faced the chair judge, who had sanctioned her for cheating and talking with her coach. This course the quarterfinals were their limit in Australia and the third round at Roland Garros. At Wimbledon, his favorite tournament, which he has lifted seven times, like Australia, six US Open and three Roland Garros, fell again in the decisive match against Halep, and again without winning a set. To Serena, who in September turns 38 years, you run out of opportunities to reach Court. But surely some more will.
