Weather: Partly cloudy with sunny spells. High of 73 degrees.
Women’s Semifinals on Thursday: No. 15 Marion Bartoli, France, def. No. 20 Kirsten Flipkens, Belgium, 6-1, 6-2; No. 23 Sabine Lisicki, Germany, def. No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska, Poland, 6-4, 2-6, 9-7.
Stat of the Day: 2 – Saturday’s final between Bartoli and Lisicki will be the second at Wimbledon in the 45-year Open era between two women who never have won a Grand Slam championship.
Quote of the Day: “I always believed in it. Always. No matter what happened. I can still remember when the doctor told me that I have to be on crutches the next six weeks,” said Lisicki, reflecting on the left ankle injury that forced her to miss seven months of action in 2010 and nearly ruined her career.
