Halep had a decent 2018, winning the French Open and finishing in the Australian Open Finals. She wasn’t nearly as dominant to start 2019. However, here she is, ready to take on the greatest women’s tennis player in history for her second major title.
Does Halep have any chance of beating Serena? A case can be made that Halep battled much tougher opponents on her way to the finals. The more battle-tested Halep could pick up her game enough to upset Williams on Saturday.

Williams vs Halep 2019 Wimbledon Women’s Finals Betting Analysis
Serena has looked good during this tournament, but it feels like this is Simona’s time. She beat Victoria Azarenka in Round 3, sent 15-year-old tennis phenom Cori Gauff home in the fourth round, and then got past Shuai Zhang in the quarterfinals.
She battled excellent player Elina Svitolina in the semis. Halep easily handled Svitolina 6-1, 6-3. In the semis, there’s no doubt that she battled a much tougher opponent than Serena Williams. The real knock is that Williams has owned Halep in the head-to-head, beating her in 9-of-10. We can overlook that because Simona might be hitting her peak as a professional. Halep gets the nod in what should be a great tennis match.
