Simona Halep won her first Wimbledon title and crushed Serena Williams' latest bid for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title with a devastating 56-minute display of athleticism.

The Romanian won 6-2, 6-2 in front of an incredulous Centre Court, running after everything the American threw at her, according to BBC.

"It was my best match," the 27-year-old said after her second Grand Slam title following her 2018 French Open success.

For 37-year-old Williams, it was a third major final defeat in 12 months.

"She played out of her mind, it was a little bit deer in the headlights for me," Williams said.
