In the semi-finals, Li Na will face the winner between Ivanovic and Canadian star Bouchard. Bouchard was the winner of the WTA Rookie Award last season, but judging from the current momentum, it should be difficult for her to pass Ivanovic.

For Li Na, the biggest threat to the championship is still the defending champion Azarenka, who just swept last year’s big dark horse Stevens in the fourth round today to reach the quarterfinals, in the first four games Keep it up. After entering the new season, Azarenka won the runner-up in the Brisbane game. At that time, his opponent was Serena Serena, and when Serena was out of the game, the Belarusian star has become the number one favorite in the eyes of the bookmaker.

Defensive players such as Zniacki and Jankovic are incomparable, which allows her to fully demonstrate her potential to dominate women's tennis. Azarenka has won the Australian Open for two consecutive years. Last season, he was the only player who could beat Serena twice. Li Na faced such an opponent with no obvious shortcomings, and had to adopt richer skills and tactics.
