In her fifth showpiece final, Halep demolished the 23-time major victor Williams 6-2, 6-2 in 55 minutes on Centre Court but before then came some hardships.
This made her the first Romanian to win here, although Ilie Nastase got close in 1972 before losing 7-5 in the fifth set to Stan Smith, and she was rewarded with £2.25m in prize money and lifetime membership of the All-England Club. She previously won the French Open in 2018.
"I have learned that it's a normal match, not thinking that much about the trophy, just going there and try to be the best as you can", Halepsaid.
The 23 grand-slam champ is being celebrated for her response in a post-tournament press conference in which she was questioned about her commitment to tennis over activism.

Williams was seeking her first grand slam title since she won the Australian Open in 2017.

"I just came out on court to do my best".

At 2-2 Halep scooped up a ball she had no right to reach and Williams lurched forward to blaze a backhand long. The scoreboard will say Halep won the first set 6-1, but it took her 43 minutes to win.
Serena Williams's march towards the Wimbledon final has seen some rocky moments. "I always play well when I have emotions. So now I am happy". The 27-year-old broke serve in the opening game and raced into a 4-0 lead.
"The fact that I am able to win maybe will give inspiration also to Romanians, the kids, that it is possible, even if you come from a little country, it's possible if you work and if you believe", she said.
But it was Halep who wowed the fans, haring across the turf to whip a superb backhand on her way to a second break which she sealed with a flashing backhand return victor.
However, Saturday's match was all Halep - who said she had never played a better round. "So I didn't think of anything at all".
