Related News Simona Halep revealed how she shrugged aside her previous trepidation of facing Serena Williams as she hammered the 23-time grand slam champion in Saturday’s Wimbledon final.Prior to their meeting on Centre Court, Halep had won just one of 10 meetings with the American, at the WTA Finals in Singapore five years ago, but she was put aside her rival 6-2, 6-2 in less than an hour on this occasion. Wimbledon 2019: Serena Williams says she was a ‘deer in the headlights’ in loss to Halep Wimbledon 2019: Simona Halep calls victory over Serena Williams her best match “Well, I thought about the match, but I didn’t think at all against who I play,” Halep told a media conference.”I (have) always been intimidated a little bit when I faced Serena. She’s an inspiration for everyone and the model for everyone.”Today I decided before the match that I’m going to focus on myself and on the final of a grand slam, not on her. That’s why I was able to play my best, to be relaxed, and to be able to be positive and confident against her.When the dream becomes a reality… #Wimbledon | @Simona_Halep pic.twitter.com/MTTkwRdthE— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 13, 2019″I decided this morning how I have to play against her. I knew exactly what I have to do to put her in trouble, not letting her make her game.”When she has time, she plays unbelievable. I played many times against her. I knew how the ball is coming. I knew what she doesn’t like that much.”Today I just went for it like in Singapore. I had that image in my head. I really believed there is the chance to do the same thing. I knew I have to stay there every ball. Otherwise, when she comes back, she’s very powerful. “It’s never easy to face a grand slam final. You can get intimidated by the moment. You can get nervous, too nervous.”I have learned that it’s a normal match, not thinking that much about the trophy, just going there and try to be the best as you can. So I did that.”I said that every time I would play a final of a grand slam, I will do exactly the same thing. So today I did it.”

Phelps 10, Reichenberger 5, Nance 14, Pettegrew 6, Snipes 13, King 14. Mulvane10974â€”30 Follow us on Twitter. Wellington 64 Mulvane 30 Mulvane: Dulaney 9, Leclair 3, Paker 4, Myers 2, Chancellor 7, Myers 2, Blaine 4, Price 1. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” A slow first quarter did not squash Wellingtonâ€™s hopes of winning their first state tournament bid since 1952. The Crusaders, as expected, beat Mulvane 63-30 Thursday night at Ollie Thomas gymnasium in Winfield.Wellington will play Rose Hill on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Rose Hill beat top seed Winfield 65-55.The Crusaders staved off an early first quarter slump in which it trailed much of the first quarter to take control of the game in the second quarter and eventually doubling up on the outmatched Wildcats. Wellington would outscore Mulvane 50-20 in the final three quarters for the win. The last three minutes of the game was a running clock.Â â€œThe kids were so keyed up all week for this game that when they got on the floor that had that deer in the headlight look,â€ said Brian Buchanan, Wellington head boys basketball. â€œOur rebounding was really, really bad early on. But I will hand it to this group. They have been resilient all year and tonight was no exception. I think we may have evened rebounding out in the end.â€Wellington had trouble early with Mulvaneâ€™s size inside. James Chancellor, a 6-3, sophomore; and Troy Baker, a 6-6, junior were taking the gentlemen Dukes to task in the paint in the early going. Mulvane briefly held a 6-3 lead, and Trevor Nance was assessed his second foul quickly. Nance spent much of the first half on the bench.But Buchananâ€™s troops spread the court with the 6-5 senior sitting the bench. And Wellington would slowly pull away.Wellingtonâ€™s late first quarter early second quarter surge could be attributed to its two freshmen: Ian King and A.J. Snipes, who poured in 14 and 13 points respectively and were outstanding defensively.â€œThe freshman came to play in this game,â€ Buchanan said. â€œThey really have played some quality varsity minutes all season and tonight it really paid off for them.â€A key moment in the game came when Chancellor was called for his third foul late in the second quarter on a rebound. He didnâ€™t like the call and the ref assessed him a technical – making it his fourth foul. The Mulvane coach would never put him back in the game.Once Nance warmed up, Mulvane had no answers for him in the second half and Wellington slowly pulled away. Baker would eventually foul out and Nance, despite going scoreless in the first quarter, ended up with 14 points.
