Lisicki goes to Family Circle Cup final
Just like when she played Melinda Czink in the quarterfinals, Marion Bartoli had little trouble getting her first serve in in today's Charleston semifinal match against Sabine Lisicki. But today's first serve was not yesterday's. It lacked both the crack and the precision, and presented little trouble for Lisicki, who spent the next hour serving aces, smacking winners down the line, hitting drop shots and drop volleys, and generally frustrating Bartoli at every turn. Lisicki won, 6-3, 6-1, and will play Caroline Wozniacki in the final.
