London: Marion Bartoli wasted little time in advancing to her second Wimbledon final, dancing and grunting her way to a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Kirsten Flipkens on Thursday.

The 15th-seeded Frenchwoman jumped out to 3-0 in the first set, and broke early in the second for another 3-0 lead to eliminate Flipkens, a 20th-seeded Belgian who was making her first semifinal appearance at a major tournament.

Bartoli also reached the final at the All England Club in 2007, but lost to Venus Williams in straight sets.

In the other semifinal later Thursday, fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland faced No. 23 Sabine Lisicki of Germany.
