A spot in the world's top 10 is the target for one-time Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki.

The German made a slow start to 2015 before reaching the quarter-finals at Indian Wells and last-16 in Miami.

Lisicki, ranked 19 in the world, was a finalist at Wimbledon in 2013 when she was downed by Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli.

The 25-year-old has regularly been a good performer on grass - holding a 23-6 win-loss record at the All England Club - and is eyeing a first ever top-10 place.

"I discuss my aims always with my coach and we aren't talking about it in public. A goal was to get back into the top 20," Lisicki said on Wednesday as she unveiled the UEFA Champions League trophy with former Germany international Arne Friedrich.

"We have now done and now the next 10 will follow."
