London: Less than 24 hours after knocking Serena Williams out of Wimbledon, Sabine Lisicki made quick work of her next opponent, topping Kaia Kanepi 6-3, 6-3 in 61 minutes Tuesday.

The 23rd-seeded Lisicki advanced to her second Wimbledon semi-final, where she'll play the winner of a quarterfinal between No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska and No. 6 Li Na.

Though the two quarterfinals began at the same time, Radwanska and Li had just finished their first set at the time Lisicki and Kanepi were shaking hands.
