Li Na ousts Laura Robson to enter Last 16
Chinese fifth seed Li Na advanced to the fourth round of the US Open yesterday, smacking 11 aces in a 6-2, 7-5 victory over British teen Laura Robson.
Li avenged a third-round loss to Robson in last year’s tournament and will next face either Japanese qualifier Kurumi Nara or Serbian ninth seed Jelena Jankovic for a berth in the quarter-finals.
“I was really happy how I was hitting on the court,” Li said. “And I thought I served really well.”
