It took 47 Grand Slam tournaments, but Marion Bartoli finally has her first one. In only 81 minutes, No. 15 Bartoli convincingly defeated No. 23 Sabine Lisicki in straight sets (6-1, 6-4) to win the 2013 Ladies' Wimbledon final. Even though Bartoli never faced an opponent with a higher ranking than her—Lisicki had a little something to do with that—she never lost a set in the tourney and that same dominating form was on display today. 

Congrats, Marion. Now, on to the next one.
