Marion Bartoli in 2005

Marion Bartoli (born 2 October 1984) is a French retired female professional tennis player.

Her highest ranking was 7th in the world in singles and 15th in doubles. She won seven Women's Tennis Association tournaments in singles and three in doubles. She was known for playing two-handed shots on both forehand and backhand, which is unusual.

In 2007 she played in the Wimbledon final against Venus Williams, after winning against the World Number 1 Justine Henin in the semi-finals. It was considered one of the biggest shocks in Wimbledon history. Bartoli lost against Williams in the final, finishing as runner-up. Bartoli won the Wimbledon singles in 2013.

Bartoli retired in August 2013 due to pain from injuries. She lives in Geneva in Switzerland.
