In-form Lisicki ready for Radwanska

Sabine Lisicki insists she does not feel any pressure at Wimbledon as she attempts to become the first German since Steffi Graf 14 years ago to reach a Grand Slam final.
The 23-year-old has already enjoyed a memorable week, beating top seed Serena Williams on Monday before seeing off Kaia Kanepi in the quarter-finals just 24 hours later.

She now faces the Polish player and last year's beaten finalist Agnieszka Radwanska in the semi-finals. Lisicki is 3.75 to win the match in three sets and is 1.40 to claim the Wimbledon title outright.
"Not at all, no pressure," said Lisicki. "For me, it's still a game that I love so much, and I want to keep it that way. I'm going out there for every match to win it and we'll see what happens."
Marion Bartoli plays Kirsten Flipkens in the other semi-final on Thursday and, in a Wimbledon of surprises, it will be only the fifth Grand Slam in the Open era in which none of the top three seeds have reached the semi-finals following the early exits of Williams, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka.
Lisicki reached the last four at Wimbledon two years ago but she was thrashed by Radwanska the last time the two women met - in the Dubai quarter-finals last year, when the German managed to win just three games.
