Marion Bartoli, Agnieszka Radwanska, Sabine Lisicki and Kirsten Flipkens have made the semi-finals at SW19.

Out of the four women at Wimbledon who went through from the quarter-finals to the semi-finals only Marion Bartoli and Agnieszka Radwanska have made it to a Grand Slam final before.

Both women were unsuccessful in their quest for a maiden title. The other two women in the semi-final at Wimbledon, Sabine Lisicki who defeated defending champion Serena Williams in Round 4 and Kirsten Flipkens who beat former champion Petra Kvitova in the quarter-final.

Maria Sharapova, Li Na, Victoria Azarenka and Venus Williams all women who have won Grand Slams earlier have fallen to injuries or the superior game play of opponents.

The tag line of Wimbledon is "Where legends are born" and this year the ladies' semi-final and final line-up will see the rise of a new star in tennis as World No4 Radwanska is seeking her first title and looking to justify the ranking system as the top seeds have fallen.

Sabine Lisicki, a giant-killer will look to slay the demons and her opponents as she looks to emulate fellow-German Steffi Graf and win the Venus Rosewater Dish at the grass court tournament.

Kirsten Flipkens comes from Belgium where Grand Slam champions Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters hail from. Though both women have never won at Wimbledon, Flipkens will be looking to better them and win her first Grand Slam at SW19.

Marion Bartoli will be hoping to make the final and better her performance six years ago when she was defeated by Venus Williams who lifted the cup.

Glory beckons one of these four women as a new ladies' champion will walk away on Saturday from London's Centre Court joining Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams who have won the Australian and French Open as the Grand Slam title holders for 2013.
