Latest Li Na Items
A look at the first day of the Australian Open tennis championships on Monday:
After researching on YouTube a 16-year-old opponent she'd never seen play before, Li Na will have to do it all over again for her next round at the Australian Open against another 16-year-old unknown to her.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Fresh from three weeks off the tennis court during her offseason and a win last week in China, Li Na is back at one of her favorite tournaments with a slightly revamped game looking to add a second career Grand Slam singles title.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Women to watch at the Australian Open, which begins Monday:
SHENZHEN, China (AP) — Defending champion Li Na and Peng Shuai advanced Friday to set up an all-Chinese final at the Shenzhen Open.
Williams sank to her knees after firing a backhand winner on her second match point. She became the eighth woman to win 11 or more titles a year and the first since Martina Hingis had 12 in 1997.
The defending champion won the first seven games of Friday's match, then actually fell down a break early in the second set, before quickly regaining it on the way to a 6-0, 6-3 victory over fifth-seeded Li Na.
Each took a step forward Friday, shaky at moments and sensational in others, in second-round victories. The top-seeded Djokovic faced two early set points, while defending champion Murray had to go four sets.
Thanks to the rain and the schedule makers, Serena Williams got an unexpected day off Wednesday at the U.S. Open.
