Age: 37 WTA Ranking: 10 (Highest ranking: 1)

Grand Slam titles: 23 (Australian Open 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2015, 2017; French Open 2002, 2013, 2015; Wimbledon 2002, 2003, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2015, 2016; U.S. Open 1999, 2002, 2008, 2012, 2013, 2014) 2018 Wimbledon performance: Runner-up

Since winning her last Grand Slam title in Australia in 2017, Williams has reached two more major finals -- at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open -- and failed in her quest to win a record-equalling 24th major singles crown. However, she goes into Saturday's Wimbledon final with a stellar record against Halep, having lost to the Romanian only once in 10 meetings between the pair back in 2014.

7-SIMONA HALEP Age: 27

WTA Ranking: 7 (Highest ranking: 1) Grand Slam titles: 1 (French Open 2018)

2018 Wimbledon performance: Third round Best Wimbledon performance: Final (2019)

Sets dropped at Wimbledon 2019: 1 Halep has yet to win a title in 2019 but has been in menacing form at Wimbledon, even though grass is not her favourite surface.

The counter-puncher has stuck to her clay-court strengths on the grass and dictated play from the baseline to reach her first Grand Slam final since winning the French Open last year. HEAD-TO-HEAD: WILLIAMS LEADS 9-1
