Simona Halep to receive Romania’s highest distinction
Wimbledon champion Simona Halep will be awarded Steaua Romaniei- the highest distinction of Romania. After her sensational performance in Wimbledon, the 27-year-old became the first Romanian to win a Wimbledon singles title after toppling Serena Williams in the final last week. She beat Serena 6-2 6-2 in the 56-minute women's singles final. This was her second grand slam after her triumph at French Open last year.
