Wimbledon final: Who will claim her maiden slam?

Wimbledon final:

Sabine Lisicki vs. Marion Bartoli

Sabine Lisicki overcame the tricky Agnieszka Radwanska in a topsy turvy match whereas Marion Bartoli had an extremely easy time seeing off Kirsten Flipkens. However, as they are both given a day's rest, I don't think both will be low on energy. Sabine is now the favourite to take this title after surviving her tough draw compared to Bartoli who reached the finals by beating zero top 15 players. Not taking anything away from Marion, but the tournament needs a redeeming and it can only be done if Sabine takes the title. If Marion does win, the highest ranked player she faced will be Sloane Stephens, hardly a slam contender. It will definitely go down the record books as the easiest slam win ever. Sabine leads the heads to heads 3-1, so she will be the favourite going in. Given her performance so far, I think Sabine is ready. She just needs to steady her nerves and not have moments where she just couldn't land a ball in.

Pick: Lisicki in 2 sets
