MELBOURNE, Australia - Sixth-seeded Li Na has advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open with a 6-4, 6-1 win Friday over Sorana Cirstea of Romania.
Li will next play Julia Goerges of Germany, who beat Zheng Jie 6-3, 1-6, 7-5 earlier Friday.
Li, the 2011 French Open champion, is trying to add a second Grand Slam title, and the Australian Open appears to be her best chance.
She advanced to the 2010 semifinals, the 2011 final — losing to Kim Clijsters — and the fourth round here last year.
