Germany's Sabine Lisicki followed up her monumental upset of Serena Williams with an efficient 6-3, 6-3 win in the Wimbledon quarterfinals over Estonia's Kaia Kanepi on Tuesday.

Lisicki has reached the semifinals for the second time, having also made it in 2011 when she lost to Maria Sharapova.
"I've had some great challenges on the way to the semis, and now I'm ready for the semis,'' Lisicki said, via the Associated Press.
Sports books made her the tournament favorite after she snapped Williams' 34-match winning streak.
On Tuesday, Lisicki won 79 percent of the points on her first serve and was broken only once. She hit 23 winners, including six on drop shots, to Kanepi's 13. Kanepi fell to 0-5 in Grand Slam quarterfinals.
The 23-year-old Lisicki will face the winner of the quarterfinal between Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland and Li Na of China.
