June 25, 2014

LONDON (AP) — Australian Open champion Li Na advanced to the third round at Wimbledon with a 6-2, 6-2 win Wednesday over Yvonne Meusburger of Austria.

The second-seeded Li had two early service breaks and was also broken once on her service early in the second set, but took control at 4-2 and then broke the Austrian player a third time in the set.

Serving for the match, Li clinched the win with consecutive forehands to the open court and then a cross-court backhand volley.

Meusburger had only four winners in the match, compared to 33 for Li.

Li, also the 2011 French Open champion, reached last year's quarterfinals here.

She'll play either Elena Vesnina or Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in the third round.
