LONDON - Marion Bartoli overwhelmed an out of sorts Sabine Lisicki 6-1 6-4 on a sun-drenched Center Court to win her first Wimbledon title on Saturday.

Frenchwoman Bartoli, seeded 15th, took full advantage of a desperately nervous performance by her German opponent who knocked out defending champion Serena Williams in the fourth round.

Lisicki, the 23rd seed, broke Bartoli's serve in the opening game of the match but the Frenchwoman hit straight back and took advantage of 14 unforced errors by the German to secure the opening set in 31 minutes.
