No. 24 is the target and the target still hasn’t been reached but whether she does or not for many she will still be the greatest. Many are saying Serena won’t get there but can we just move away for a moment from ‘winning’ No.24 and remember since giving birth where she could have lost her life following complications she has fought to make things better for women and returning mothers.

Simona Halep is Wimbledon champion. Following the Romanian’s below par exit from Paris not long it led to questions and my god hasn’t she answered them with an incredible 6-2 6-2 victory over Serena Williams in just 56 minutes. She set the theme and I said in my preview my head said Simona would win here and I’m soo pleased for her. It was the complete performance and will be something I will be directing over the coming days as it was bloody brilliant. The way she covered the whole court, returned serve and the passing winners were flawless. You … Continue reading Simona Halep – Wimbledon Champion 🏆

At the hands of the top seeds Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar the run of Andy Murray and Serena Williams in the mixed doubles has come to an end. It has been a fun few days of tennis which began last Saturday with a straight sets win and that followed on Tuesday but today the top seeds were too good. Bruno and Nicole have played mixed doubles a few times together and you could tell. Both were strong on serve and at the net. Nicole really introduced the lob really well during the tie.
