German player Sabine Lisicki has defeated Wimbledon favourite Serena Williams 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 in the fourth round at a packed Centre Court.

Lisicki, ranked 23rd in the world, also ended Williams’ 34-match winning streak and her attempt to secure a sixth title at the All England Club.

The loss comes as another shock to the tournament, which has seen the exit of a number of top-seeded players, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka.

After losing the first set, Williams seemed to find her feet winning nine straight games to take a 3-0 lead in the third set.

Despite being a break up twice in the third set, Williams soon found herself fighting break points as the German brought it back to 4-4.

Lisicki broke at 5-4, and converted her second match point to win with a powerful forehand.

In an emotional post-match interview, Lisicki said “Serena played a fantastic match. She’s such a tough opponent.”

She added that it’s “just an amazing feeling to win this match.”
