A New Grand Slam Champion Will Be Crowned At Wimbledon

Jul 4, 2013

After numerous upsets and plenty of close and enthralling tennis matches over the past 11 days, a new Grand Slam champion will be crowned at the conclusion of the Ladies’ Singles Championship Final on Saturday at SW19, world No.15 Marion Bartoli from France and the big serving German world No.24 Sabine Lisicki will go head to head to see who will hold the Venus Rosewater Dish aloft and earn the right to be called the Wimbledon Champion of 2013, with the Big 3 of Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova all falling early, the prospect for two unlikely ladies’ singles finalists quickly became a reality at this year’s championships.

Former finalist Bartoli has had a dream run at The Championships in 2013 and the French 28 year old will now not face anyone seeded above her in the ladies’ singles draw, if Marion wins the Wimbledon title on Saturday she will become a first time Grand Slam champion without having to play any player seeded above her, Lisicki on the other hand has had a much tougher road to negotiate in order to reach the final, the German 23 year old has had to defeat 14th seed Sam Stosur in the 3rd round, top seeded defending champion and hot favourite Williams in the fourth round and the 4th seeded 2012 runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska in a pulsating semi-final.

Bartoli has not dropped a set at The Championships this year and she has the benefit of previous Grand Slam final experience having reached the decider at The All England Club back in 2007, Lisicki has beaten the contenders who were clearly more favoured in 2013 but the title match will be the German’s first experience in a Grand Slam finale, regardless of which player wins the title, the one thing we do know is that come Saturday evening in London at SW19, a new Grand Slam Champion will be crowned.

Which lady will win her maiden Grand Slam title at Wimbledon?
