- LISICKI 6-4 2-6 2-5 – A lovely half volley gives Lisicki an anchor in the game and she benefits from a net cord to go 15-30. She forces a break point but nets and the chance is gone. Cirstea just a game away.

Big chance gone.
- LISICKI 6-4 2-6 1-3 – Lisicki wins the opening point and clenches her fist. Another big forehand gets here further pumped. She’s a real fighter as she proved against Angelique Kerber at Wimbledon.

A weak forehand half way up the net concedes a break point but two huge serves and an unforced error give Lisicki a vital hold.
