WIMBLEDON, England -- American teenager Sloane Stephens failed in her bid to reach the fourth round at a second straight Grand Slam tournament, losing in three sets to Sabine Lisicki of Germany at Wimbledon on Friday.
The 15th-seeded Lisicki, a semifinalist here last year, found some consistency on her groundstrokes in the final set to complete a 7-6 (5), 1-6, 6-2 victory.
The 19-year-old Stephens was playing in her first Wimbledon and looking to reproduce her exploits from the French Open, where she reached the fourth round in her best run at a major.
However, she lost five straight points after leading 5-2 in the first-set tiebreaker before recovering to win five consecutive games in a dominant second set.
