Well the stage is set for the women’s Wimbledon final which takes place on Saturday.
This final features two opponents who have never won a Grand Slam title. Bartoli advanced to this year’s final by defeating Kirsten Flipkens in straight sets 6-1 and 6-2.
Sabine Lisicki struggled in her semi final against Radwanska, but prevailed in the end, winning 6-4, 2-6 and 9-7.
I’m sure this wasn’t the final anyone was expecting. But at least now fans will get to see one of these players win the Championship for the first time.
And both players certainly deserve to be heading to the final as well. It’ll be interesting to see which player prevails.
On the one side, you’ve got Lisicki, who is still building on the momentum from her victory against Serena Williams.
And on the other, you’ve got Bartoli, who has been to the finals of this tournament before.
Both of these players have many similarities within their game. They both have strong serves, exceptional footwork, and aren’t afraid to charge the net when required.
This match is going to come down to which player can keep their composure, keep up with and manage the intense pressure.
I believe this will be one of the most exciting women’s finals ever at Wimbledon.
It may not feature any of the more familiar faces in the women’s game. But that just proves that the level of skill required is increasing in the women’s game.
I can’t wait to see which of these great players will lift the trophy on Saturday.
