Sabine Lisicki (GER, Tennis Beauty)

Sabine Lisicki made waves around the tennis world a few days back, as she shocked French Open Champion Li Na 李娜 at the Second Round of Wimbledon. Lisicki, a wild card entry, utilized her booming serves and fancy forehand to eke out a well-earned win over Li, 3-6, 6-4, 8-6.

Prior to the aforesaid match, Lisicki had reached the 2009 quarterfinals of Wimbledon. An ankle injury cut short her breakout season, where she ranked as high as No. 22. As she recuperated from her injury, her WTA ranking fell "outside 200."

With Lisicki's groundbreaking win over Li and her recovery from the injuries of the years past, Lisicki is on target to at least match her 2009 record at the All-England Club.
