It will be difficult for Serena to break the record now.

Annoying too because she's only two away from doing it, but she will be 38 in two months and is choking in Finals because she feels the pressure.

Same thing happened when she was trying to tie Everett and Martina with 18 Slams.

How cool would it have been if Serena and Federer both won Wimbledon at 37?

She has been heavier than this in the past and still been quicker and more agile.

The main issue is her movement/footwork is shot.

Yeah I don't watch tennis that much but even I was impressed with Halep's performance.

She was a monster on the court, those returns were as good as it gets, I think she would of beat Sererna even if she was having a good day, the fact that she fell apart just made the inevitable quicker.

If Sererna can't bully people with fast serves then she's limited, Halep was too quick, to conditioned and her returns too on point, Serena didn't have a chance.

i was theorizing that the footwork/agility was conditioning related...

Federer dominating while Djokovic is on autopilot in first set but Djokovic still snatches it in tie break...

Edit: Same story in the 3rd set. I have no idea how Djokovic is 2-1 up in sets in this match.

I forgot about the no tie break rule at Wimbledon.

Prefer this.

There is a tie break now, but only if they reach 12-12 in gems.

This is f***ing tense. Especially when you consider slam record is arguably at stake.
