I'm really pleased for Bartoli. She handled the occasion of the final so well, especially after going down a break at the start of the match. Lovely to see how much the win meant to her - as if she could hardly believe what had happened.

I feel sorry for Lisicki. It's an awful feeling when nerves prevent you from performing your best. Hopefully she'll get another chance to be in a Wimbledon final again - she'll be much better prepared then.

Wow.I didn't hear him,but if Inverdale did say this I am DISGUSTED.

@geowriter WOW. John Inverdale on 5 live: 'd'you think Bartoli's dad told her when she was little 'you're never going to be a looker?'

I hope he didn't say that Dani - how totally unprofessional if he did. He'd never dream of saying that about any of the ATP players.

Having seen how Lisicki was effected by her first time Wimbledon final, one would hope people had a bit more sympathy for Andy, but probably not Rolling Eyes
Now just hoping the  Bryan Bros will lose. pray

Well, if he did say that vomit
In fact she has a beautiful madonna like face- not that it bloody matters ranting

It's terrible she gets insulted for the looks she was born with. But in regards to her weight, well, to me winning Wimbledon with that excess fat just goes to show the poor state of affairs women's tennis is in. You could never have a man with that body getting anywhere near the latter stages of the tournament.

I may joke about it but I'm not going to call her fat. It's just no where near the athletic body you'd need in men's tennis.

I know - I'm just joshing.  If I'm honest, I thought the same thing.  Good on her and all that, but she is clearly carrying excess weight, and I am surprised it doesn't slow her down, or affect her game.

The hate Bartoli gets on twitter is unbelievable. Worse than Murray right after the England comments. Why? Because she's French, 'fat' and 'ugly'. Just... wow.

Delighted for Bartoli.

I don't quite get it, she doesn't have an unattractive face, IMO at least. She's carrying a bit of weight but not loads. Anyway, it reveals a lot about the human psyche when such features in a person prompt hatred.

  Most athletes in performance are not pretty. Exertion is not a "feminine" thing.

One word... Boobs. Serena is the same, she has a supposed 'fat' psyche, but it's her boobs that give her that.

I say well done Bartoli we all can't have great looks and figures. She won fair and square and she came over in her interview as a very nice person.

Well it looks like the Bryan brothers did their golden slam and nobody cares :p

They might as well retire after that, what else are they going to do?
