Despite the bee sting: Lisicki in the quarterfinals of Bad Homburg

Former Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki is still on course at the tennis tournament in Bad Homburg. On Wednesday, the 32-year-old defeated the Belgian Greetje Minnen 6: 3, 2: 6, 6: 2 and thus made it into the quarter-finals.

Going into the next round in a good mood: Sabine Lisicki.


Only on Tuesday did Lisicki win 6: 4, 7: 6 against compatriot Tamara Korpatsch and thus celebrated her first professional victory in a main field after the comeback.

“The match was basically really good today, I’m just really happy about that. I’m also happy to be able to continue playing,” said Lisicki. The tennis player told of a bee sting that “still hurts really badly”. She wanted to prevent an allergic reaction.

After a severe cruciate ligament injury and a one-and-a-half year injury break, Lisicki returned to the WTA Tour in Berlin last week, but missed qualifying for the main draw. In Bad Homburg she got a wildcard. In the quarter-finals on Thursday, Lisicki will now face France’s Caroline Garcia.

Maria out – Kerber in the afternoon

Tatjana Maria, who lost her round of 16 6:7 (4:7), 4:6 against Alize Cornet from France, is no longer represented in the tournament. Angelique Kerber will open in the afternoon.
