Serena puts legend King in her place, says equality is her cause

The Duchess of Sussex arrives on day twelve of the Wimbledon Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club Wimbledon

Simona Halep of Romania pose for a photo with her trophy after winning the Ladies' Singles final against Serena Williams of The United States during Day twelve of The Championships - Wimbledon 2019 at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 13, 2019 in London, England.

Williams was soundly thrashed 6-2 6-2 by an inspired Simona Halep in Saturday's Wimbledon final as the American once again fell short in her bid to equal Margaret Court's record of 24 major singles titles.

The 27-year-old Romanian captured her second career major with a 6-2, 6-2 victory, adding a maiden Wimbledon to her 2018 Roland Garros triumph.

"Actually I did hear it", she said.

Williams had 26 unforced errors, compared to just three for Halep.

Serena Williams delivered a stinging rebuke to fellow tennis legend Billie Jean King who said she should focus on tennis and stop behaving like a celebrity and fighting for equality. "Made me a little bit stronger today, honestly, to be able to believe that I have the chance to win". "It's never easy to face a Grand Slam final". You know, I never thought about time in general. I really think it did.

Then she started working with a renowned sports psychologist who helped her from turning negative in times of adversity on the court.

Asked what her mother had said to her after the match, she laughed: "She did not say anything because she was crying".

"Now, you know, in my 20s - I'm always expected to win, but it's a different circumstance for me", she said.

Daniel Sturridge’s Lucci strike! Star and dog reunited after £30k appeal
Sturridge, 29, offered a £30,000 reward for the return of the Pomeranian, which he said was stolen during a break-in at his house in Los Angeles.

"I just came out on court to do my best".

But it was Halep who wowed the fans, haring across the turf to whip a superb backhand on her way to a second break which she sealed with a flashing backhand return victor.

While Halep fell to her knees to celebrate her win and kissed the trophy repeatedly, she seemed nearly as pleased to be wearing a little badge that meant she was now a member of the All England Club. I would like to see her put everything else aside from that. Because if you listen to him, you get the good things.

"But this year, as I said every day, I started to feel the game more and more".

Per Sports Illustrated, Williams has the the edge and then some-commanding a 9-1 advantage over Halep, including when the two faced off at Wimbledon 2011.

Williams was responding to a question from a journalist who told her tennis legend Billie Jean King suggested the 23-time major victor should stop trying to be a "celebrity" and concentrate on winning matches. I have so much to look forward to.

"In everything she does, Serena shines a light on what all of us must fight for in order to achieve equality for all".

The 37-year-old thanked her team and said it was an honor to play in front of the fans, despite the loss.
