Fifth seed Maria Sharapova is headed back to the finals at Wimbledon.

Sharapova, who won the Wimbledon title as a 17 year old in 2004, overcame serving issues to defeat Sabine Lisicki in straight sets.

She will meet lefthander Petra Kvitova, who dropped the middle set of her match, beating Victoria Azarenka.

Sharapova has won three Grand Slam titles, the last being in the Australian Open in 2008.  Kvitova is the first lefthander to reach the Wimbledon final since Martina Navratilova in 1994.
