Chinese sensation Na Li used all her experience to overcome some first set jitters to brush aside Spaniard Garbine Muguruza in straight sets to reach the last 8 of the Sony Open. Li started the match on a superb note but failed to sustain the momentum and got herself in trouble in the latter part of the opening set. Li won 7-6(6), 6-2 in an hour and 44 minutes after a dominating second set performance.
In over an hour it was Li who came out on top as she overcame a slip in form to take the opening set in a tie-break. The set was full of drama with both players reeling a string of games together. Li served for the set at 5-1 but a sudden dip in concentration saw Muguruza take 5 games in a row to lead 6-5. Even in the tie-break, the Chinese was in front by 6 points to 1 but failed to convert all the set points. It was the seventh set point for Li which helped her take the first set as the Spaniard seemed dejected with the loss.
Li was the one doing everything - be it taking games or giving games. Muguruza played some fine tennis and went for her shots, making them at times. In the end Li's experience came in handy as she played a good tie break and played the crucial points well to take the first set.

The second set was one way traffic for the Chinese as she broke the Muguruza serve early in the set and later went on to hold her serve to constantly apply pressure on the Spaniard. With the pressure mounting on Muguruza, she went for the lines and failed to hit the targets. It was a double fault that helped Li get the match and move into the quarters.
