Transforming performance: Simona

Simone Halep has defeated Serena Williams in the Ladies’ Singles Final at Wimbledon 2019, 6v2, 6v2 (link).

What struck me forcefully about this game was the precision of Simona’s play. One set of data suggests that she made just three unforced errors in the whole game.

Her 56-minute performance demonstrated how athletes can transform performance and combine the physical, psychological (link), technical and tactical (link) in an integrated way that takes performance to a new level.

Such performances redefine what it is to compete and encourage observers to consider the game as a world best (link).
