Li Na enters third round at Wimbledon

Jun 27 2013, 8:28am CDT | by

London, June 27 (IANS) Sixth seed Li Na of China overcame a blip in the second set to beat Simona Halep 6-2, 1-6, 6-0 and enter the women's singles third round at Wimbledon here on Thursday.

London, June 27 — Sixth seed Li Na of China overcame a blip in the second set to beat Simona Halep 6-2, 1-6, 6-0 and enter the women's singles third round at Wimbledon here on Thursday.

The world number 32 of Romania, who asked to receive a lengthy treatment after the opening set, found her pace in the next set to regain the momentum, causing the Chinese player to suffer most of her 14 unforced errors in the 85-minute match, Xinhua reports.

However, Li Na, the quarter finalist here in 2006 and 2010, calmed down to break her opponent thrice in the third set and win six straight games to seal victory.

Li Na returns to the last-32 of this Grand Slam for the first time since 2010.
