I have a friend that said he has cousins with the Bartoli name and he said they are italian? So i looked it up on the house of names website and it said it is Italian. So is Marion ethnically Italian with a French nationality? Anyone in the know, can you please explain.

Bartoli's father is from Corsica, a french island, so basically he is French.... so is her mother

It's Corsican,it has italian roots for sure because before Corsica belonged to the Genovese republic and italian was the official language until 1858;)

With this final, Marion joins the ranks of the famous Bartolis. Both of whom are Italian (Cecilia the singer and Michele the former UCI #1 cyclist).

Corsican and Sardinian are practically their own ethnicity. Sardinian is a separate language (not even a dialect, a language) from Italian, and Corsica has tons of Italian influences, including Italian heritage. So, while Bartoli is French in nationality, and has been for ages, she is most likely, at least on her father's side, a little bit Italian.

One of the best things about French is that they typically don't even differentiate between the different ethnicities; everyone is just French.

Maybe she immigrated? Bartoli does sound a lot more Italian than French. :)

There are quite a few French players though with non-French surnames on tour. Tatiana Golovin, Aravane Rezai, Mathilde Johansson and Olivia Sanchez are other examples.
