Tennis: Lisicki allergic to Wimbledon?

LONDON (AP) — Sabine Lisicki is allergic to Wimbledon, sort of.

Not the town in southwest London, and not the All England Club. But she does have hay fever, making her hypersensitive to the very grass for which the tournament is so famous.

That affliction, of course, won’t stop her from playing in the Wimbledon final Saturday, when either she or Marion Bartoli will end up with a first Grand Slam title.

Lisicki is on medication and has learned how to cope. She says: “By now I know what to do, what to take, to calm those allergies down.”
