Sabine Lisicki, shock winner over Serena Williams in the fourth round, eases into the Wimbledon semi-finals with a 6-3 6-3 win over Kaia Kanepi.

 WIMBLEDON, LONDON, UK (JULY 2, 2013) (AELTC) - S German Sabine Lisicki lived up to her status as the new Wimbledon favourite with a clinical 6-3 6-3 demolition of Kaia Kanepi of Estonia in the quarter-finals on Tuesday (July 2).

Lisicki, who knocked out defending champion and top seed Serena Williams in the fourth round, broke Kanepi's serve in the opening game of the match on Court One and wrapped up the first set in 33 minutes.

Kanepi took advantage of three Lisicki double faults to break serve for a 2-1 lead in the second set but the German 23rd seed reeled off four games in a row to stand on the brink of the last four.

Kanepi held serve to stop the rot but Lisicki sealed victory in just 65 minutes with a forehand volley on her third match point.

Lisicki will play fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland or sixth seed Li Na ofChina in her second Wimbledon semi-final.
