Venus Williams clinches her fourth title at Wimbledon, Marion Bartoli leaves an impression

Seed No.23 Venus Williams of the USA defeated seed No. 18 Marion Bartoli of France 6-4 6-1 in the final on Saturday. It was a decisive win for Venus, who should be congratulated on her amazing comeback. With this victory the 27-year-old American became the fourth four-time winner of Wimbledon in the open era, joining Billie-Jean King, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf.

Being ranked only 31st in the world Venus Williams defeated 2004 Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova on Wednesday, 2004 U.S. Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova on Thursday and French Open runner-up Ana Ivanovic on Friday.

World No. 19 Marion Bartoli shouldn’t be sad for losing in the final because she managed to surprise the whole world with her amazing performance at this year’s Wimbledon. The 22-year-old has been competing in Grand Slams since 2001, but only once did she reach the fourth round. This year, however, she beat No. 16 seed Shahar Peer, No. 3 seed Jelena Jankovic, No. 31 seed Michaella Krajicek, and even top seed Justine Henin!

I am fascinated by Bartoli’s mental strength. In the semifinal against the strong favorite for the title Justine Henin, Bartoli kept her head calm even though she was a set down and playing a match of her career. Many players, especially young ones, lack that ability. (photo: BBC)
