Serena's being outplayed in every way imaginable. Simona's deserving this title if the match continues as is with her break here in the 2nd set....

Congratulations to Simona, a well-earned title. Controlled the match in every category....serves, groundstrokes, court coverage, net play and dictated the rallies....

Simona played pressure free, that's why. Serena, not at all.

Halep didn't prevent Serena from Serving...
Serena got to get over that #24 pressure.
she can't keep doing this. Must as well retire if you can't show up for the big matches.

Perhaps the knee was an issue.

Disagree....Simona had pressure...her lst Wimby final, a coveted title for her more so than any other title, playing a player who has a 9-1 header on her, had lost the last 5 times they've met (her last victory was in 2015), facing a player who has won Wimby 7 times and playing against a player who's ground game became much more proficient as the tourney unfolded. So, Simona had pressure in this match...

The only pressure Serena faced is self-imposed, I assume, anxious about getting #24. However, I didn't expect her ground game to fall apart and her serve to completely disappear. Serena has never been proficient around the net, so blowing volleys is not unusual, pushing such beyond the baseline I've seen ere. She'll have to explain in her presser how she felt, for I don't understand how she can come out flat for a Wimby final. Yet, credit to Simona for she came to play and outplayed Serena today, earning her title in decisive fashion.

Yet, for Serena credit to her for reaching Slam finals 3 times at ages 37 and her 38th year of birth while being passed her prime and a recent mother. I'm not going to hold her to some standard at her age for many in the game historically haven't come close to her achievements beyond age 30. Small consolation for she wasn't playing like a player that should retire, unlike her sister. There is lost of skill and movement in her game, hitting and returning on the run for one, expected at her age. However, I didn't expect her to be beaten this badly for a Wimby final.

Given this Tour's current crop of players, she can still reach the USO final, draw-permitting, but these latest losses for her at her age, doesn't make one confident that she can win a final there, including the fact that "there is always something" for her at that event.

Disappointing Wimby for the ladies, the semis and final were a bomb.

Just lose in R1 and move on.
