Second seed Li Na might have started her opening match here at the Aegon International in Eastbourne in a slightly jittery fashion, but soon found her rhythm, stepping on the gas whenever she needed. The Chinese won the match in straight sets 6-2,6-4 looking largely untroubled all through the course of it.
Li needed just under one and a half hours to finish the match off while winning an impressive 65 percent service points and 46 percent return points today.
The match started with a comfortable service hold for Alize Cornet, but as expected that was never going to be the order of the day, on the other hand Li Na held on to serve too, as we quietly moved to 1 all.
Havin reached that stage, the flood gates opened as neither player was able to find her rhythm on serve and soon saw a flurry of breaks. After three breaks of serve, Li had a 3-2 lead as she served to cement that advantage. It seemed as if the Chinese would flatter to deceive yet once more when she went down 0-40, but somehow after a momentous struggle Li came back and consolidated that advantage.
With that, the Frenchwoman seemed to have lost focus and conceded the set 6-2 after another break of serve for Li.
The second set started off with a couple of service holds for both players as the Frenchwoman looked determined to start afresh. In the fifth game however, Cornet played a loose, slack service game which led to a break of serve.
With the set precariously poised at with Li Na leading 3-2, there was a crowd incident where a spectator fell off a flight of stairs leading to the match being interrupted.
After a delay of almost half an hour, players returned to the court and Li started from where she left off finally killing the match off by winning the set 6-4.
