The most impressive thing that will come from this 2013 Wimbledon is your Saturday champion, Marion Bartoli, who didn't drop a single set on her way to her first ever Grand Slam title.

Bartoli took out Sabine Lisicki 6-1, 6-4, but the match never seemed that close. Bartoli never let up in her run to a first ever major, and was the most dominant player at Wimbledon for two weeks.

Despite a first set loss, the Bryan brothers never looked like they were really in trouble of losing their fourth straight Grand Slam title, becoming the first doubles team to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time in the Open era.

It was Mike and Bob's 15th Grand Slam title and third Wimbledon title, and if they can snag the U.S. Open, they would be just the second duo to win all four Grand Slams in the same calendar year, joining Ken McGregor and Frank Sedgman who did it back in 1951.

Martina Hingis, a five-time Grand Slam champion, caught some tennis at Centre Court on Saturday at Wimbledon.

Oh, not a ton besides the most anticipated match of 2013. Andy Murray and all the pressure of Great Britain face off against Novak Djokovic and his No. 1 in the world ranking. Djokovic has won this championship before, and Murray is playing for his country in what will definitely be one of the most watched events of the entire calendar year across the pond.

Coverage kicks off at 8 AM ET, and tennis will begin at 9 AM ET on ESPN.
