Halep Beats Svitolina To Reach First Wimbledon Final 

Simona Halep defeated Elina Svitolina in straight sets to qualify for her first ever Wimbledon final on Thursday.

Seventh seed, Halep saw off Svitolina 6-1, 6-3 to become the first Romanian woman to reach a Wimbledon singles final.

It will be Halep’s fifth grand slam final and comes just over a year after she won her first major title at fourth attempt at the French Open.

Svitolina got on board with a quick break back but it was Halep who seized control of the set thereafter, her extra attacking abilities, particularly her forehand down the line, giving her the edge.

It took her six set points to get over the line but she finally did so with a forehand winner.

Svitolina, stayed with Halep for six games in the second set but a break for the Romanian to lead 4-3 proved the crucial moment.

She will meet Serena Williams or Barbora Strycova in the final.
