But at that point her opponent, Serena Williams, was shuffling towards the net, head bowed and hand outstretched. And Centre Court was rising and roaring to salute a performance of staggering intensity.
"Thinking that it is a possibility to win on grass, it was tough to believe because we don't even have a grass court in Romania". She defeated Giulia Gatto-Monticone in two sets in the first round but had to play to 7 games in the second set to do it.
Asked to describe how victory felt, Halep revealed that her legs had almost given way. You treat it a little bit easier, let's say.
"I'm very sure that was the best match of my life".
Though it seemed as if Serena Williams was about to cruise to a historic win at Wimbledon, Simona Halep defeated the "Greatest Of All Time" in a shocking upset! It also fulfilled a longtime promise.
"After winning the (2018) French Open I took a big holiday, a long holiday, and then I said it is a chill year", she grinned. "And the day came and my mum is here to see it".

"She didn't say anything because she was crying", Halep smiled. "Just I hugged her and I kissed her".
"I had lots of nerves, my stomach wasn't very well".
Simona Halep beats Serena Williams to win Wimbledon title

"It's something very special and I'll never forget this day". But this year I started to feel the game more and more.
Belief has not always been the strongest part of her game.
Simona Halep stressed the importance of the victory to her and her family in the post-match interview.
The 75-year-old told the BBC earlier in the tournament that Williams should give up being a celebrity for a year: "Just stop all this insanity". This is not the kind of background din you need when trying to win a Grand Slam. Because if you listen to him, you get the good things. "You can get nervous, too nervous".
"But I meant I wanted to relax as a person, not as a player", she laughed. The 27-year-old broke serve in the opening game and raced into a 4-0 lead. Wimbledon was stunned, but not as half as much as Williams.
Nevertheless, Williams refused to accept that the record may elude her.
The pattern continued in the second set - with Halep's superior speed and waspish groundstrokes allowing her to get Williams's cannonballs back with interest until she had forced the error.
Williams lost to Angelique Kerber in last year's Wimbledon final and lost to Naomi Osaka in the championship match at the US Open. "She's an inspiration for everyone".
"I have learned that it's a normal match".
"I came on court and gave my best". "I looked at the scoreboard". I think I have the feeling. If she is quite happy the way she is, then fine.
