Sabine Lisicki is in the quarterfinals of the tennis tournament in Bad Homburg. The German wins in three sets against the Belgian Greetje Minnen. A bee sting bothers her.
Former Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki is still on track at the tennis tournament in Bad Homburg. On Wednesday, the 32-year-old defeated the Belgian Greetje Minnen 6: 3, 2: 6, 6: 2 and thus made it into the quarter-finals.
Only on Tuesday did Lisicki win 6: 4, 7: 6 against compatriot Tamara Korpatsch and thus celebrated her first professional victory in a main field after the comeback.
“The match was basically really good today, I’m just really happy about that. I’m also happy to be able to continue playing,” said Lisicki.
The tennis player shared a bee sting that “still really hurts”. She cooled the spot directly and wanted to prevent an allergic reaction.
After a severe cruciate ligament injury and a one-and-a-half year injury break, Lisicki returned to the WTA Tour in Berlin last week, but missed qualifying for the main draw.
In Bad Homburg she got a wildcard. In the quarter-finals on Thursday, Lisicki will now face France’s Caroline Garcia. Tatjana Maria, who lost her round of 16 6:7 (4:7), 4:6 against Alizé Cornet from France, is no longer represented in the tournament.
