United States' Serena Williams reacts as she plays Czech Republic's Barbora Strycova in a Women's semifinal singles match on day ten of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Thursday

But after losing each of her first three major finals, Halep now has won two straight, including at last year's French Open.

Serena Williams is one of the best tennis players to ever set foot on a court, and one of the greatest athletes of all time. Up until she got to Wimbledon, the veteran had only played 12 matches and pulled out of three tournaments due to a host of injuries. Maintaining a positive attitude will be key.

She will, however, know better than to underestimate Halep, who is the highest-seeded player left in the tournament. It all comes down to belief.

Simona Halep celebrates on July 13, 2019 in London.

And how could she not? She holds the record for the most Grand Slams in the Open Era. She is now going for the most of all time, to equal Margaret Court. "I have learned that I have the chance".

The Wimbledon women's final between Serena Williams and Simona Halep will take place at 9 a.m. (EST) Saturday at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club. The serve is helping me. "Serena likes to step into the return". But you can jam her with a body serve, which she doesn't like.

Her returns were exceptional, repeatedly getting back serves that left Williams' racket at 115 miles per hour or more. That takes away the angle and the power.

"You have to have that winner's mentality, that I belong here, I have earned my way here and I'll be playing great".

"I remember after that, I just trained and I trained and I trained to get physically more fit". 7 to Serena's No. 11-and already being a major champion, Halep entered this match as a significant underdog.

Twitter users have mocked "mediocre white men" after a survey showed how many people think they could win a point off USA legend Serena Williams if they faced her in a game of tennis. Williams will be the oldest women's slam finalist in history.

What time does the final clash between Serena Williams vs Simona Halep Wimbledon 2019 start?

"When I did it, I did it for tennis", she said when she ascended to the No. 1 player in the WTA.

Meanwhile, Halep explained before the match how she has changed her grass-court tactics to improve her game. I can play everywhere, against anyone. When the ball is coming to me, now I know what to do with it.

"I was really calm".

"So here I am", she said Saturday, the fortnight done, her trophy won. But can Halep do it?
