Lisicki tio meet Bartoli in Wimbledon final

9:39 am on 6 July 2013

The 23rd seed Sabine Lisicki of Germany will play French 15th seed Marion Bartoli in the Wimbledon women's singles final.

Lisicki became the first German woman since Steffi Graf in 1999 to reach a Grand Slam final when she defeated Polish fourth seed, Agnieszka Radwanska in three tight sets.

Bartoli, meanwhile, eased into her second Wimbledon final with a 6-1 6-2 demolition of Belgium's Kirsten Flipkens.

The final will be only the 15th time in the Open Era to feature two players seeking their first Grand Slam title.
