Bartoli joined men's singles winner Andy Murray and a host of dignitaries from the world of tennis last night to celebrate a remarkable fortnight at the All England Club at the champions' ball.
Britain celebrated long in to the night after Murray ended the country's 77-year wait for a men's singles champion, but there will have also been a few parties in France after Bartoli's victory in the women's singles.
Bartoli had come in to Wimbledon on the back of a wretched patch of form, but she did not drop a set during the tournament, which she won after beating a nerve-riddled Sabine Lisicki 6-1 6-4 on Saturday afternoon.
Jean Gachassin, the president of the French Tennis Federation, was reduced to tears by Bartoli's win, and he told her that he hopes the victory will help motivate the country's next crop of stars to become just as successful as she has been.
"Seeing my president in tears waiting at the end of the match means so much for me," the enigmatic Bartoli said.
"He told me I was an inspiration for all the girls in the French Federation.
"I actually received a lot of texts from people telling me how proud they were of me, how much they want to look at me now and have the same kind of attitude."
Bartoli reached the final at SW19 six years ago, but she did not make the last two of another grand slam until Saturday.
The 28-year-old revealed last week that she had been suffering from some personal problems earlier in her career.
Those now seem to be in the past, though, and she is ready to start challenging for more majors in the coming years.
