Now that she has added the Wimbledon trophy to her collection, Simona Halep feels the only thing missing from her collection is an Olympic medal.

It means she is now a two-time major winner, having also won the French Open in 2018, and while others might put a Career Grand Slam next on their list, the 27-year-old wants to win a medal for her country.
“An Olympic medal,” she said. “I said that at the beginning of the year and I still keep it.
“I want to win any medal in the Olympics to fulfil everything I have done in tennis. It is a chance to play for my country. I have always loved to do that, playing in all the Fed Cup matches.
“The disappointment from this year [when Romania lost to France in the Fed Cup semi-finals] really hurt me, so to play to well to get a medal, it would be a dream.”
