London: Tearful Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli returned to Centre Court yesterday only to hear herself introduced as 'Maria' by a blundering announcer.

The Frenchwoman performed the coin toss ahead of the first round match between Sabine Lisicki, the German she defeated in the final last year, and Israel’s Julia Glushko.
She broke down in tears as she stood on the court where she won her only Grand Slam title. “To relive and walk again on the #wimbledon turf, it’s a lot of emotions,” the Frenchwoman tweeted.
