Sabine reached the final of the 2013 Wimbledon Championships after beating Agnieska Radwanska in an epic semi-final. The final result was 6-4 2-6 9-7 after being down 0-3 on the final set. She beat the World number one and multiple times Wimbledon champion Serena Williams on the 4th round, another match where she also trailed 0-3 on the final set. Lisicki played the final against the frenchwoman Marion Bartoli and lost in straight sets.
