Simona Halep once again captured the hearts of her compatriots after winning the second career slam title following her triumph in Wimbledon.
The Romanian sensation demolished the great Serena Williams in the final playing fantastic tennis and leaving the American in awe. The 23-time slam champion had just to congratulate Simona during the ceremony acknowledging that she played “out of her mind.”
The former world no.1 received a fantastic welcome as soon as she landed in Bucarest with the media and hundreds of fans waiting for her.
In addition, Simona received 2 great honors as the Presidency awarded her the Star of Romania, while the Church gave her the Patriarchal Cross.
Va multumesc tuturor pentru caldura cu care m-ati primit! 🤗🇷🇴
