From the Sydney Morning Herald report:
Great leap forward: Li Na through to Australian Open final
Chinese tennis moved into the world spotlight today when Li Na became the first player from the country to reach a grand slam final.
Li, 28, battled world No.1 Caroline Wozniacki for two hours, 35 minutes before clinching the semi-final 3-6 7-5 6-3.
The 20-year-old Dane had plenty of chances in the second set to win, but she couldn’t close against the Pride of The People’s Republic, who seemed to have more nerve and more resolve as the match wore on.
Watch out, Kim Clisters – who right now is leading Vera Zvonareva 6-3, 4-3 (up a break) in the other semifinal.
UPDATE: Clisters won 6-3, 6-3.
