LONDON (AP) - Sabine Lisicki advanced to her first Wimbledon final a couple of hours after Marion Bartoli reached her second.

Lisicki was a 2011 semifinalist at the All England Club. She beat fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 2-6, 9-7 Thursday on Centre Court, overpowering her opponent at the start and then hanging on at the end.

Bartoli also asserted control early on, but she never let up in a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Kirsten Flipkens.

Bartoli reached the Wimbledon final in 2007, losing to Venus Williams in straight sets.

None of the four semifinalists at this year's tournament has won a Grand Slam title.
