Kim Clijsters and Li Na will meet in a rematch of last year's Australian Open final after a dramatic end to the women's third round on Friday. 

Defending champion Clijsters reached the fourth round with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova while Li went through when Spaniard Anabel Medina Garrigues retired in tears after injuring her ankle. Li was leading 2-0 at the time.
