So much for my prediction that Serena Williams will be holding up the Wimbledon trophy. She lost Monday to Sabine Lisicki of Germany. When a French Open champ sees she’s in the same draw as Lisicki, she might as well forget about winning the Wimbledon trophy. Lisicki has beaten French Open champs in 2009, 2011, 2012 and now, 2013. Amazing.
So who will hold up the plate on Saturday? Lisicki? American Sloane Stephens? Eight players are left, and the field is now wide open.
