Re: WWW Wimbledon 2019? Serena Williams or Simona Halep?
Yeah, Fedal felt like the disappointing sequel that came out about 7 years too late. Good beginning and end but everything in the middle was pretty shit. But those two as well as Djokovic and his opponent sure did a number on Central Court today in 6+ hours of play. But it also could have been worse, like playing there for 9+ hours or something.
And yes, the H2H here doesn't mean as much as people would like to believe it does. These two have played the most Slam finals in the last two years, Serena has lost both her previous in straight sets while Simona took them to three and won one. Sure, it's the Romanian's first final here, so there absolutely will be butterflies in her stomach going out there while Serena will have none of that. But realistically, going into this match I'd say it's more like 55% Serena to win, and she has that lead only because she is Serena frigging Williams. If anyone else was there with Serena's route to the final and her exact same results I'd go for Simona Halep 55% because she made it to the final by getting through a tougher draw and she actually did it in a more dominant fashion. But again Serena is Serena so she gets that extra 10% by default, so I stand by those numbers, 55-45 in favor of Serena. That could mean either two close sets or three just as contested ones.
