Maria’s 2012 Wimbledon run is over as she was defeated by number 15 seed Sabine Lisicki of Germany in the fourth round. Maria lost 4-6 3-6 in a match time of 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Maria got an early break in the first game, but was unable to take advantage of it as she lost the next four games. Maria got the set back on serve as Lisicki of serving for the set at 5-4 but lost her serve in the next game as Lisicki won it 6-4 in 45 minutes.
The match was interrupted by a rain delay just a few points into the second set that lasted for just over 45 minutes and one break in the second set was enough for Lisicki to take the match.
The Olympics at Wimbledon will be Maria’s next tournament and they begin on July 28th.
