Halep beats Serena Williams to win Wimbledon singles title
LONDON, July 13 (Reuters) - Simona Halep became the first Romanian to win a Wimbledon singles title after she beat seven-times champion Serena Williams 6-2 6-2 in the final on Saturday.
It was Halep's second Grand Slam title following her triumph at Roland Garros last year.
The result denied Williams from equalling Margaret Court's all-time record of winning 24 Grand Slam singles titles. (Reporting by Pritha Sarkar, editing by Toby Davis)
