Maria Sharapova Through To Wimbledon Final

Maria Sharapova Through To Wimbledon Final

(Updated 4:03pm 2nd July 2011)


8:05pm 30th June 2011

Favourite Maria Sharapova is through to the Ladies final at Wimbledon despite an error strewn semi.

Sharapova served 13 double faults in just 87 minutes but beat Sabine Lisicki 6-4 6-3
in the semi-final.

The Russian fifth seed slipped 3-0 down to the German wildcard in the first set but finally found her groove.

"She played really well and I did quite the opposite," the Russian said.

Sharapova hasn't reached the final since her 2004 triumph.

"To be in the final again is a great achievement for me. I haven't got past the fourth round in quite a few years," she said.

24-year-old Sharapova faces the Czech eighth seed Petra Kvitova in Saturday's showpiece.
