WIMBLEDON, England — Think about No. 24? Try to block out No. 24? Play it cool? Play with fire?

So many questions for Serena Williams as she prepares to face another proven champion and great defender in a Wimbledon singles final.

Simona Halep, of course, will have her part to play on Saturday, when she goes up against Williams for the first time on Centre Court. Halep, a former No. 1 and the 2018 French Open champion, appears to be back in form, as she demonstrated with a decisive 6-1, 6-3 victory over Elina Svitolina in the semifinals on Thursday.
