Dallas - The German "Miss Miracle" in tennis continues. At the WTA tournament in Dallas, the two Fed Cup colleagues Sabine Lisicki (Berlin / No. 5) and Angelique Kerber (Kiel) reached the semi-finals in lockstep. Lisicki won 6: 1, 6: 2 against Ukrainian qualifier Kateryna Bondarenko and faces Romania's number eight, Irina-Camelia Begu. Kerber had no trouble at 6: 0, 6: 1 against the Swede Johanna Larsson. Her next opponent is the Frenchwoman Aravane Rezai.
"I feel like I'm playing better every day, " said Sabine Lisicki after her match against Bondarenko. Their sister Aljona is the first opponent of the Berliner at the US Open in New York (29 August to 11 September), but Lisicki has other worries regarding the last Grand Slam tournament of the year: "Hopefully, New York remains from the hurricane spared. "
The two semi-finals in Dallas take place during the night from Friday to Saturday (CEST).
