Sabine Lisicki Biography
Sabine Lisicki was born 22 September 1989 and is a German professional tennis player. She turned professional in 2006 and her breakthrough came in 2009 when she reached the quarterfinals of the Wimbledon Championships and won her first WTA title, the Family Circle Cup, against Caroline Wozniacki. In March 2010, she suffered an ankle injury at the Indian Wells Masters that kept her out of competition for five months and saw her fall out of the top 100.
She rebounded in 2011 and won the Aegon Classic before entering the Wimbledon Championships as a wildcard and going on to reach the semifinals, where she lost to Maria Sharapova. In doing so she became only the second woman in Wimbledon history to make it to the semifinals while entering the tournament as a wildcard. She followed that two months later by winning her third WTA tournament, the Texas Open. In 2012, she achieved her career-highest ranking, 12th, and again reached the quarterfinals of the Wimbledon Championships. Again, in 2012 she suffered from another left ankle injury that prevented her from having better results on tour. She has reached the final of the 2013 Wimbledon Championships and will play Marion Bartoli in the final on 6 July 2013.
In doubles, Lisicki won the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in 2011 with Samantha Stosur and in 2013 with Mona Barthel. She also reached the doubles final at Wimbledon in 2011 with Stosur and came fourth in the mixed doubles at the 2012 London Olympics with Christopher Kas.
At the Wimbledon Championships, Lisicki was seeded twenty-third. She beat Francesca Schiavone 61, 62 in the first round, Elena Vesnina 63, 61 in the second round and fourteenth seed Samantha Stosur 46, 62, 61 in the third round. In the fourth round she faced first seed and reigning Wimbledon, US Open, and French Open champion Serena Williams. Lisicki won in 3 sets; 62, 16, 64; marking the fourth time in her last four participations that she knocked out the reigning French Open champion at Wimbledon. Williams had been on a 34-match winning streak coming into the match. Lisicki defeated Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 63, 63, reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals for the second time in her career. She beat Agnieszka Radwanska in a three set semi-final 6-4, 2-6, 9-7 in 2 hours 18 minutes to advance to her first Grand Slam final, where she will meet France's Marion Bartoli; she thereby became the first German woman to reach a major final since Steffi Graf at Wimbledon in 1999, and the first German player of either gender to reach a Grand Slam singles final since Rainer Schttler at the 2003 Australian Open.
