Another upset puts Lisicki in Wimbledon Final

LONDON (AP) - Sabine Lisicki has had no letdown since ousting top-seed Serena Williams at Wimbledon. The German has reached the finals for the first time in a Grand Slam after beating fourth-seed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 2-6, 9-7. Lisicki overcame a 3-love deficit in the final set to reach a Grand Slam final for the first time just days after stunning Williams in a fourth round upset.

She'll be taking on France's Marion Bartoli for the women's title.

The 15th-seeded Frenchwoman took just 62 minutes to beat Belgium's Kirsten Flipkens 6-1, 6-2. It will be Bartoli's second time in the title match on Wimbledon's Centre Court. She reached the final in 2007, losing to Venus Williams in straight sets.

Lisicki and Bartoli have met four times previously with the German winning the last three including two years ago in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Mike and Bob Bryan have moved to within a win of their fourth straight major doubles title with a 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 over Rohan Bopanna and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

The Americans have won a record 14 Grand Slam tournaments. If they get the 15th this week, they'll become the first team in the Open era to hold all four major titles at the same time.

The Bryans have won 23 straight matches.
