Bartoli to bounce to the title.
Can’t believe its the final already!
Everyone seems to be wanting or at least expecting a Sabine Lisicki win in the Women’s final at Wimbledon. But why? Yes she has a 3-1 lead H2H over Bartoli, but you can discount 2 of those straight away as they where not on grass. So on the green surface it is 1-1…both at Wimbledon. In 2011 Lisicki won in 3 sets 6-4 6-7 6-1 , however back in 2008 Bartoli won 6-2 6-4 and shows she is more than capable of dealing with Sabine.
Lisicki has taken out Serena Williams and Agnieska Radwanska in 2013 so that is why she has favouritism. Her power is immense and if the booming serve is working then she will be hard to beat. However Marion has an unusual game and the shot making and angles being hit with penetration remind of the 2007 year where she reached the final here. She has been playing awful tennis for much of 2013, but we all know how good she can play when she gets into a tournament and zoned in….. I think she will use some of the Lisicki power to create her own winning shots and her 2007 final experience will be invaluable…..
Should be a great match, but I will stick with Value
