Lisicki ends Pennetta’s Indian Wells repeat bid

0

Sabine Lisicki was too much for defending champion Flavia Pennetta on Thursday (Friday in Manila), saving three match points in a three-set win over the Italian to book her Indian Wells semifinals berth. Pennetta had hoped to repeat her surprise victory of last year, and managed to save one match point before running out of gas in the marathon quarterfinals, won 6-4, 6-7 (3/7), 7-6 (7/4) by the 24th seed from Germany.
