Sabine Lisicki, the 23rd seed, continued her fairy-tale Wimbledon run as she defeated fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska in a three-set thriller in Thursday's women's semifinal.

Having defeated defending champion Serena Williams earlier in the draw, Lisicki took the first set 6-4 thanks to her explosive service game. The more experienced Radwanska stayed patient, waited for her chances, and took advantage of service breaks to win the second set 6-2.

The third set was a picture of the best that women's tennis has to offer. Momentum shifted multiple times as both ladies showed tremendous perseverance and skill to push the match to its limit.

After surrendering her first chance to serve out the match, Lisicki eventually broke Radwanska at 8-7, then dialed in that big serve to advance to her first-ever Grand Slam Final.

Lisicki will face Marion Bartoli in Saturday's ladies' final at the All England Club.
