Li Na Setting Her Sights on Wimbledon
Fresh from her French Open win, Li Na wowed the crowd by beating Tamira Paszek 7-5, 6-4 in the Eastbourne International. This is her first victory after winning in the French Open. Li is also becoming one of the favorite contenders in the upcoming Wimbledon Open.
Li might have a chance and is confident enough to get through Wimbledon especially when the Williams sisters are not in their top form due to extended absences from the game. Li had a great 2011 even with her five straight losses and runner-up finish in the Australian Open. After winning the French Open Li is now ranked number 4 in the world.
Serena Williams won in a match with Tsevetana Pironkova at the Eastbourne International after being out of the game for almost a year. The 29 year old Williams has been sidelined with injuries and health problems since last year. Williams looked nervous and sluggish before winning 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.
