Wimbledon | Ladies Finals Day

What to look out for today

Can Serena Williams win a 24th grand slam singles title?

It is women’s final day at Wimbledon on Saturday, with the weather set fair and an expected 23 degrees.

Seventh seed Simona Halep takes on 7-time SW19 champion Serena Williams on Centre Court from 2pm.

Centre Court, 2pm start

• Serena Williams v Simona Halep

Williams continues her quest to equal Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles. The American is stuck on 23, having lost in the finals of Wimbledon and the US Open last year, but can finally move level with the Australian with victory over Halep.
Halep will need to end her poor run of results against Williams if she is to secure her second Grand Slam title. Last year’s French Open champion has beaten Williams only once in 10 meetings, losing the last 6, but is on fire here at Wimbledon this fortnight.
