Following her match, Halep discussed how she felt after winning in straight sets against Svitolina. Halep also went on to reveal that it was her mother’s decade-old dream to see her play the final at Wimbledon.

In the post-match press conference, Simona Halep was quoted saying, “I talked to my mum after the match. About 10, 15 years ago she said her dream is the final in Wimbledon because everyone is here, the Royal Box.”
