Final Quotes
Marion Bartoli:
"Honestly I still can't believe it. I've dreamed about this moment for so long. For me, winning Wimbledon is beyond my wildest dreams, let alone with an ace Ė but I've been practicing my serve for so long, I guess I saved it for the best moment! I'm so happy to be holding this trophy. This has been my dream since I was six years old."

Sabine Lisicki: ďIíve played my best tennis here. I took out the champion and runner-up from last year. Thatís pretty big. This tournament definitely made me a better player. It was hard today but the experience will help me in the future. I still believe I can be champion one day."
