Marion Bartoli says that reaching the final of Wimbledon is not good enough this time around. The 28-year-old also reached the 2007 final, falling to Venus Williams. Bartoli will face Sabine Lisicki in the final tomorrow.

“Honestly, I'm not at the point saying: ‘It's amazing I'm in the final of Wimbledon.’ ” Bartoli said. “I'm just about to play a second Grand Slam final. I'm not in that mood at all. I just want to win the match tomorrow and just be ready for the fight again.”
