Marion Bartoli of France eliminated the last U.S. player at Wimbledon, reaching her third Grand Slam semifinal by beating Sloane Stephens 6-4, 7-5 in a rain-interrupted, break-filled match.

The 15th-seeded Bartoli, the 2007 runner-up at the All England Club, was leading 5-4 with Stephens serving at deuce when they resumed after a 2 1/2-hour rain delay. Bartoli won the next two points, the latter a 27-stroke exchange, to take the opening set.

That began a stretch in which Bartoli broke Stephens five consecutive times, four at love. After Stephens broke to get within 5-4, then held to 5-all, Bartoli took the last two games, including yet another break at love to end the quarterfinal.
