Sabine Lisicki missed the semifinals at the tennis tournament in Bad Homburg. The 32-year-old from Berlin lost in the quarterfinals against Caroline Garcia from France 3: 6, 6: 7 (7: 9).

    The former Wimbledon finalist had to admit defeat after 1:56 hours. Lisicki was unable to take advantage of numerous break chances, especially in the second set, and even missed two set points in the tie-break. Garcia finally made her progress perfect with the first match point.

    Nevertheless, Lisicki came to a satisfied conclusion. “It was definitely the right decision to come here and collect points,” said the Berliner after the game. “It takes me further, also in terms of match practice and self-confidence.” Lisicki recently celebrated her comeback after a long injury break. “The level that I play is top 100 level,” she said with satisfaction.
