Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki has caught the imagination of tennis fans in her homeland as her 6-4, 2-6, 9-7 semi-final win over Agnieszka Radwanska saw her become the first German in 14 years to reach a Grand Slam final.
"Super Sabine! It was an unbelievable fight, it was great how she kept her calm and nerve against Radwanska, especially after she was 3-0 down in the third set," Steffi Graf, who reached the 1999 Wimbledon final, wrote on Facebook.
"We will all cheer for you in the final and keep our fingers crossed."
