London • Last year’s Wimbledon runner-up, Sabine Lisicki of Germany, reached the fourth round by beating 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 Monday in a match that began two days earlier.
The second set was at 1-all Saturday night when the match was suspended because of darkness.
Wimbledon takes the middle Sunday off, which is why the 19th-seeded Lisicki and 11th-seeded Ivanovic didn’t resume until Monday.
Lisicki has made it to at least the fourth round on her last five appearances at the All England Club. She got to the quarterfinals in 2009 and 2012, the semifinals in 2011, and lost to Marion Bartoli in the 2013 final. Lisicki missed the 2010 tournament with a left ankle injury.
Lisicki next faces 65th-ranked Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan.
