Serena chasing history in Wimbledon Final

LIVE 10.45pm AEST – 7mate, Channel 7 and 7plus

                                               

Serena Williams is chasing a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles crown on Saturday night when she takes on former world No.1 Simona Halep in the Women’s Singles Final at Wimbledon exclusively live on Seven.

Williams and Halep square off at 10.45pm AEST on Saturday night, with Seven’s coverage starting on 7mate in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth before switching to 7.

The 37-year-old American is not only bidding to equal Australian great Margaret Court’s all-time Grand Slam singles record against Halep, she is also gunning for her eighth Wimbledon crown, which would take her past German great Steffi Graf and behind only nine-time champion Martina Navratilova. 

However, Halep won’t be a pushover. The Romanian is no stranger to Grand Slam finals, having lost a tight three-setter to Caroline Wozniacki in the 2018 Australian Open Final before taking the French Open crown later that year, when she came from one set down in the Final to defeat Sloane Stephens.

Earlier, at 8.00 AEST, Aussie hero Dylan Alcott contests the inaugural Quad Wheelchair Singles Final against Britain’s Andy Lapthorne live and free on 7plus and the 7Sport app.   

Alcott and Lapthorne teamed up to win the Quad Wheelchair Doubles Final on Friday night, but will put their friendship aside temporarily as they bid to become the first-ever quad singles champion of Wimbledon.

After the women’s singles final, the centre court action will continue with the Men’s and Women’s Doubles Finals.

The commentary team consists of a host of the biggest names in tennis, including John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Martina Navratilova, Tracy Austin and Tim Henman.

Fans can also stream Wimbledon live on 7plus and the 7Sport app, and catch up on all the highlights and interviews on the app.
