  1. - - LI - 3-6 6-2 6-1 - GAME SET AND MATCH! Li is serving for the match now and eases 30-15 up with some neat serve and crosscourters. And now two match points as she repeats the trick, taken coolly with a nice crosscourt pass with an opened forehand. Li is through, Yaroslava Shvedova next after her win over Carla Suarez Navarro. Women's draw.

  2. - - LI 3-6 6-2 3-1 - BREAK! Clap clap Li, she has regained her form and shows great power against the McHale serve.

  3. - - LI 3-6 6-2 - BREAK AND SET! Having held on to that break to 3-0, Li faces a McHale serving to stay in it. And a power drive beyond the American levels. Got to back Li now.

  4. - - LI 3-6 3-1 – BREAK! Two break points for Li now as she finally shows her powerful returning game! The next one flies into the net though, down to two... Taken with the next one!

  5. - - LI 3-6 - SET! McHale makes no mistake with her next service game and she takes the first set off the Chinese star, who goes long in the end.

  6. - - LI 3-5 - BREAK! Well that lasted long. McHale breaks again, neither girl able to really dictate their points on serve, and now she serves for the set.

  7. - - Li 3-4 - BREAK BACK! The Chinese can break straight back here but goes long with a deep groundstroke and it’s back to deuce. But another break point for Li, which she takes with a lofted shot that McHale can’t make!

  8. - - Li 2-4 - BREAK! The first break of this match and it's deserved for McHale, who has really tested the Chinese's serve and watches her go long at break point off deuce.

  9. - - LI 1-1 An epic second game sees McHale gain a couple of break points that Li is having to put everything into saving! Back on deuce after the American goes long. Finally the Chinese holds, but that took a lot of effort.

  10. - - LI 0-1 Li Na of China, seeded seventh, faces American Christina McHale, who is in good form at the moment. McHale starts with a hold. Key moments from this match on Suzanne Lenglen.

  2. this young player also played very well against­ sharapova in the stuttgart (italian?) open, 4-6,4-6. it­ will be another shock if she beats the defending­ champion li na. another nail-biting match!

  3. really impressive display from mchale....I have never­ really watched her play until now....and now I see why­ she beat all those top ten players last year. she's­ just like a better wozniacki. only difference is,­ she's as good on offence as she is on defense.... ­ Li breaks to lead second set 3-1....
