Nine years after her coronation at Wimbledon, Marion Bartoli confides: “I don’t use the language of wood, it’s an asset in my role”


Winner in 2013, Marion Bartoli will be a consultant for the BBC on this 2022 edition and gives us her first impressions.

The history of Wimbledon is filled with dozens of wonderful stories. Among these, that of the French Marion Bartoli. In 2013, while experiencing a not very successful first half of the season, Corsica presented itself to the All England without great ambitions. Fifteen days later, the right-hander who struck with both hands both backhand and forehand lifted a Cup that had been denied to her six years earlier when she lost to Venus Williams in the final. But in 2013, Marion Bartoli managed to seize her chance in a draw that saw the top seeds drop like flies. Tracing her way to the final, the Frenchwoman dominated the German Sabine Lisicki to win the best title of her career.

This week, it is therefore always with the same happiness that the former seventh world has taken over the management of All England with her husband and daughter by her side. On site, Marion’s schedule will be quite busy between her work as a commentator for the BBC, her performances in the Legends Trophy and various ceremonies.
