Serena Williams avenges loss to Simona Halep
October 27 , 2014
Four days after she lost to Simona Halep, Serena Williams had her sweet and swift revenge on Sunday, October 26, when she overwhelmed the Romanian in straight sets with a 6-3 6-0 victory to win her fifth WTA Finals title in Singapore, according to media reports.
Halep started well, taking a 2-1 lead, but the American World number one broke back immediately and then went on to win eight straight games that included 26 winners.
Williams, 33, later said that she told herself to relax after the first few games, after which she “started playing better and making my shots.”
