Agnieszka Radwanska, who reached the Wimbledon semifinals despite a right leg injury, says pain won't stop her from playing on Thursday against Sabine Lisicki.

“I think if it's the end of a Grand Slam you don't really think about the pain or anything else,” she said. “You just fight until the end. That's what I was doing today. And I think I don't know how much pain I have to have just to give up. I think there's no limit.”

The fourth-seeded Radwanska said last week that she felt a lot of  pressure having to defend her run to the 2012 Wimbledon final. After reaching the semifinal for the second straight year, Radwanska says pressure is diminished.

“I think the bigger pressure is I think in the first week,” she said. “You see the player, and I think the quarterfinal is the minimum for everyone, especially when you’re seeded. I think now I'm just more relaxed. I think semifinal, it's already great result.  I think I will just go on court and try my best again without that big pressure.”
