Perth: Marion Bartoli left her opponent in tears on Tuesday after a 6-0, 6-0 rout in the Hopman Cup put France on the way to victory over Australia.
Bartoli needed only 50 minutes to beat Jarmila Gajdosova, finishing off the match with her 12th ace.
"I'm sorry I beat her that way but I was just focusing on my own game and not looking at the scoreboard," Bartoli said. "She's so talented and she's a lovely lady and when I saw her in tears it was really heartbreaking. But I can't really miss a shot just for (the sake of) missing the shot."
