“It’s ridiculous!” Flipkens said. “Last year I didn’t even get into qualifying. To be a semifinalist at Wimbledon, it cannot be better. I was so calm on the court, I had nothing to lose and I just went for my shots…Kim (Clijsters) was one of the few people still believing in me last year so I have to thank her. I’m just enjoying every moment. It’s more than a dream.”

Cloaking herself in a calm yet angry demeanor after losing the first set, the world No. 1 won nine of the next 10 games before Lisicki upped her game trailing 0-3 in the third, and Serena became a little more defensive. Lisicki closed it out on her second match point to end the American’s 34-match winning streak in 2013.

“It was a fantastic match,” Djokovic said. “I felt great from the start ’til the end. I had that super focus and tried to be out there every point and not allow him to come back in the match or to have any chances. I saw the stats that I won 100 percent of first serves and I served over 80 percent of serves in in the whole match. That was incredible for me. I enjoyed every moment of it, especially at the end…This kind of performance came in the right time for me.”

Notes: Insane field with two former No. 1s and an additional Slam champ all unseeded…The Top 3 seeds are current or former No. 1s…Tough opening-round matches are (5) Na vs. Tamira Paszek then the winner of Venus and (WC) Medina Garrigues, (3) Azarenka vs. Pavlyuchenkova, (11) Petrova vs. a qualifier then likely Kuznetsova, (16) Ivanovic vs. a qualifier then likely her Serb countrywoman Jankovic, (9) Stosur vs. the clay-savvy Suarez Navarro, and (2) Sharapova vs. a qualifier then likely Peng…No blue clay this year…Former champs in the field are Serena Williams (2012) and Kvitova (2011).
