(July 2, 2013) No. 23 seed Sabine Lisicki did on Tuesday failed to do what few seed-killers could not do this fortnight at Wimbledon – win a match after the big upset. A day after the German’s stunning three-set victory over No. 1 Serena Williams, Lisicki took down No. 46 Kaia Kanepi 6-3, 6-3 to move into the Wimbledon semifinals.

For Lisicki it will be her second trip to the Wimbledon semis. She’ll play fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska next, who ousted No. 6 Li Na in a rain interrupted three-set quarterfinal match 7-6(5), 4-6, 6-2.

On the other side of the draw No. 15 Marion Bartoli pushed past No. 17 Sloane Stephens in straight sets 6-4, 7-5, while No. 20 Kirsten Flipkens topped 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
