Serena set another record after her semi-finals victory.

She is now into a Grand Slam final for the 13th consecutive year.

After losing two Slam finals in 2018, this is a massive chance for Serena to come good.

"It's good, especially after my year. I just needed some matches. I know I'm improving and I just needed to feel good," said Serena.

What to expect from the women's singles final?

It's going to be a cracking tie between two players who haven't lost any intensity during the tourney. Halep is more mature now and will provide a stern challenge. Serena's experience may come into play here. She cannot afford to repeat last year's show.
