Wimbledon 2013 scores and results: Marion Bartoli, Sabine Lisicki to battle in women's final

Julian Finney

The final round of the women's draw features two players gunning for their first career Grand Slam titles.

No. 15 Marion Bartoli and No. 23 Sabine Lisicki will meet in the women's final at Wimbledon on Saturday. Bartoli advanced with a straight-set victory, losing just three games. Lisicki had it a bit more difficult, needing three sets to reach the final.

Bartoli rolled past Kirsten Flipkens, 6-1, 6-2, to reach a Grand Slam final for the first time since 2007. Bartoli jumped on Flipkens quickly in the opening set and appeared firmly in control by the time she led 3-0. The first set ended up taking less than a half hour, and the second set wasn't much longer. Bartoli has faced more arduous matches in the tournament, but she has yet to be pushed to a third set by an opponent.

Lisicki had a real struggle on her hands, but she triumphed in a lengthy third set to beat No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 2-6, 9-7. Radwanska held a 3-1 lead early in the final set, but Lisicki rallied to even things up 3-3, and from there it was a back-and-forth affair. Lisicki eventually broke Radwanska's serve to take an 8-7 lead, which propelled her to victory. Lisicki has beaten two of the top four seeds to reach the final.
