Sabine Lisicki has defeated Caroline Wozniacki 6-2, 6-4 to win the 2009 Family Circle Cup.

Ranked at No. 63 in the world, 19-year-old Lisicki has become the lowest ranked player to ever win the cup. But in many ways the real shocker had come when she defeated No. 2 seed Venus Williams. has video from the final match, the Associated Press has a write-up, and the tournament has some context about the win.

Oh, and I admit we could have given the tennis tournament more linkage, so if you want to read more, I suggest hoping over to The Post and Courier's topic page or the tournament's news page.

Update April 20: The Post and Courier has added a write-up.
