(London) -- 15 th - seeded Marion Bartoli won her first - ever major tennis championship, beating 23 rd - seeded Sabine Lisicki in Saturday's Ladies Final at Wimbledon, 6 - 1, 6 - 4.
This was Bartoli's 47 th Grand Slam tournament, the most ever played by a woman before earning a championship. She is the only woman in the 45 - year Open era to win Wimbledon playing two - fisted shots off both wings (Monica Seles, Bartoli's inspiration for that unusual style, collected her nine major titles elsewhere).
