Simona Halep Wins Her First Wimbledon Tennis Title

July 14, 2019

Simona Halep eased past Serena Williams in straight sets (2) to win her first Wimbledon women’s tennis crown.

It is Ms. Halep’s second major title. She won the French Open title last year.

If Williams, certainly among the greats in women’s tennis history, who had the road “paved” for her in this tournament, (so many top players were ousted and though an 11th seed, Williams was a huge favorite in all her matches until the final and even then, was a 2 to 1 favorite) had prevailed, the hype would have been overwhelming.

I will not go the other way and highly criticize this failure, as I try to keep some perspective, even in the face of the “out of whack,” publicity afforded Williams, Tiger Woods, LeBron James and others.

 

A nice big picture of Simona Halep, as I concentrate on Halep won and NOT Williams lost.
