Andy Murray and Marion Bartoli captured the men’s and women’s titles respectively at Wimbledon this weekend.

 

Men’s Final — Andy Murray def. Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4

Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets on Sunday, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, to become the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.

After expertly breaking Djokovic several times throughout the match, Murray set himself up for the win in the third set. Djokovic battled back in the epic final game, forcing four separate championship points. Murray claimed the title after Djokovic netted a forehand follow-up shot.

 

Women’s Final — Marion Bartoli def. Sabine Lisicki 6-1, 6-4

Marion Bartoli of France used a quirky assortment of shots to beat Sabine Lisicki of Germany, 6-1, 6-4, and win the women’s title at Wimbledon in London on Saturday. The 15th-seeded Bartoli cruised to her first major title in just 1 hour and 21 minutes, thoroughly dominating a hesitant Lisicki.

The duo made for an unlikely final match having each navigated a fortnight punctuated by upsets of favorites Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.
