LONDON (AP) - Semifinalists Agnieszka Radwanska, Marion Bartoli, Kirsten Flipkens and Sabine Lisicki are a fitting foursome for a Wimbledon unlike any other.

Not only has none of them won a title at the All England Club, none has won any Grand Slam title.

Never before in the 45-year Open era had no previous major champion reached the Wimbledon women's semifinals.

With all of the surprises over the past 1½ weeks, it makes sense that this would be the last group of players. On Thursday, No. 4-seeded Radwanska will face No. 23 Lisicki, and No. 15 Bartoli will play No. 20 Flipkens.
