  1. - - LISICKI 6-3 6-3 - GAME, SET & MATCH! Fantastic from Lisicki, despite a couple of nervy shots to squander a couple of points from 30-0 up. But she earns herself a first match point and then seals her place in the semi-finals with a forehand drive volley winner across court. Fantastic stuff from the German, who will play the winner between Radwanska and Li.

  2. - - LISICKI 6-3 5-3 - Kanepi nets a forehand to allow Lisicki to level at deuce for a second time before she can go on to hold and at least force the German to serve out the match.

  3. - - LISICKI 6-3 5-2 - A backhand winner down the line from Lisicki sees her hold to consolidate the break. Kanepi will have to serve to stay in this match after the change of ends.

  4. - - LISICKI 6-3 4-2 - BREAK! Ouch. Kanepi drops her serve yet again as she nets a backhand to help Lisicki break for a second time in this set, this time to go ahead. Having had that poor game at the start of the second set, the German has looked completely in control once again and is now potentially just two games away from the semi-finals.

  5. - - LISICKI 6-3 3-2 - A gorgeous forehand stop volley goes for a drop shot winner from Lisicki to hold without too much trouble and get her second set back on track.

  6. - - LISICKI 6-3 2-2 - BREAK! Just the one poor game from Lisicki then as she breaks back to 15 immediately when Kanepi throws in a double fault of her own.

  7. - - LISICKI 6-3 1-2 - BREAK! Ouch. Three double faults out of nowhere from the German practically hand Kanepi the early break in this second set - the Estonian only forced to get one ball back in play which Lisicki promptly returns into the net.

  8. - - LISICKI 6-3 1-1 - Kanepi throws in a double fault to allow Lisicki to level at 30-30. But she follows it with an ace and then a forehand winner to hold and get off the mark.

  9. - - LISICKI 6-3 1-0 - Lisicki bookends the game with a pair of aces to race through a hold to 15 to get this second set underway. Kanepi just looks at a loss as to what to attempt against the Lisicki serve.

  10. - - LISICKI 6-3 - SET! Lisicki plays a drop shot from way behind the baseline, which brings up a first set point when Kanepi fails to get there. And one set point is all the German needs as Kanepi goes wide with a change of direction forehand down the line.

  11. - - LISICKI 5-3 - Lisicki holds with a 93mph kicker second serve out wide that completely befuddles Kanepi. The Estonian had pushed to decue again in that game but still she has no luck and instead will have to serve to keep this opening set alive.

  12. - - LISICKI 4-3 - Kanepi ghosts into the net and dinks a backhand volley just over the net to hold from deuce in another very tough service game.

  13. - - LISICKI 4-2 - Kanepi is causing Lisicki increasing amounts of problems now as she pushes the German all the way to deuce before Lisicki can go on hold and maintain her break advantage in this opening set. It's a big serve and a forehand error from Kanepi that hands the German the game in the end.

  14. - - LISICKI 3-2 - Boom! Kanepi is really starting to fire on that serve now as she flings down an ace to secure a hold to 30. That will make her feel a lot better about the course of this match.

  15. - - LISICKI 3-1 - Lisicki opens the game with a double fault but any hope Kanepi had of getting the break back is quickly snuffed out by the German as she bounces back to hold to 30.

  16. - - LISICKI 2-1 - Kanepi finally discovers her blistering serve as she hold to keep the break down to just the one game when Lisicki is forced into a cramped forehand that she fails to get the ball over the net.

  17. - - LISICKI 2-0 - A smash winner opens the game for Lisicki, who goes on to hold and consolidate the early break to 30 when Kanepi nets a backhand return.

  18. - - LISICKI 1-0 - BREAK! On Court 1, there's been an epic opening game with Lisicki picking up right where she left off yesterday against Serena, belting a series of huge returns to eventually break the Kanepi serve from deuce with a forehand ripped down the line that the Estonian cannot return.
