Halep had played the biggest final of her career - and her eighth WTA final in the last 12 months.
Simona Halep !
Two of the biggest WTA stars in the world - Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova - were both there.
It was Williams' WTA-leading seventh title of the year - nobody else on the tour won more than four.
Simona Halep was just too solid, needing just 65 minutes to score her biggest career win, 6-0, 6-2.
