Simona Halep: Wimbledon finalist opens up on baby plans before Serena Williams match | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Wimbledon star Simona Halep, 27, may have her heart set on winning the final against Serena Williams, 37, today, but the Romanian tennis ace has admitted she is keen to be a mother. “In 10 years I would love to have three kids,” she told The Guardian earlier this year. “A beautiful family and be out of tennis – knowing I gave it everything.” Simona tends to keep her personal life under-wraps, but she is rumoured to be dating former tennis player Radu Barbu, 35. The pair have never announced their relationship in public, but were reportedly spotted enjoying a holiday together in Italy recently.

Is it believed the duo met through mutual friends.

Simona went on to say of her future: “Now I would love to be better in Fed Cup, to dream of the title, and the Olympics in 2020.

“I also want to win a grand slam again, to finish No 1 again. But I won’t put pressure on myself.

“I will have few more years of tennis and then I want to improve in other ways.”

Last year, Simona was taken to hospital following her loss against Caroline Wozniacki in the Australian Open final.

The tennis star received the help of medical professionals after she began shaking in her hotel following a press conference.

Reflecting on the moment, she said: “My mother was worried and said if she was in my place she would stop and just enjoy life.

“It was really bad for three months. I was exhausted and couldn’t recover totally. But I am proud I played at my limit.”

She went on to say throwing everything into her career took its toll on her health.

“Everything I did in life, until now, was just for tennis,” she admitted.

“Nothing else mattered. That’s why it became too much, maybe. That’s why I suffered.”

Following her win at the 2018 French Open, she went on to say she felt less pressured and more chilled about her career.

Today, Simona will battle for victory against Serena.

The tennis ace beat Elina Svitolina, 24, 6-1 6-3, taking her to today’s final at the All England Club.

She told BBC: “I will believe that I have my chance to win against her.

"Of course, I respect a lot what she has done and what she's doing.”

Coverage of the Wimbledon 2019 women's final starts from 1pm on BBC One.
