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

BBC reports the Romanian won 6‑2 6‑2.

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

Williams, like in last year's final defeat by Angelique Kerber, seemed weighed down by public and personal expectations as she quickly fell 4‑0 behind in the opening set.
