Simona Halep has insisted that her Wimbledon quarter-final victory over Sabine Lisicki was "not as easy as it looked".

The Romanian third seed made it through to the last four at SW19 on Wednesday with a commanding 6-4 6-0 win against the German.

However, Halep believes that the one-sided scoreline does not reflect the competitive nature of the match.

"It wasn't as easy at it looked," she told BBC Sport. "I had a slow start but then I came back well.

"I played my best and I enjoyed every moment being on Centre Court so I am happy I could win in two sets and prepare for the next match."

Halep will now take on Canada's Eugenie Bouchard for a place in Saturday's final.
