The fourth seed has managed to reach the quarter finals at Melbourne Park for the fourth time in since 2010 and 28th seed Flavia Pennetta is the next opponent stopping her from extending her good streak on Australian soil.
After a couple of shaky moments late last week, Li Na seemed to be back to her best as she crushed 22nd seed Ekaterina Makarova 6-2 6-0 in the fourth round to set up the clash in the last eight.
By advancing into the last eight, it has meant that the world number four has now won all eight games so far in 2014 and remains just one of two women on the WTA to be undefeated since the start of the New Year.
It won’t be easy for Li though as Flavia Pennetta is in the best form of her career so far as she has already set her new personal best for a performance at the Australian open.
Having only been as far as the fourth round in her previous attempts, the Italian managed to reach uncharted waters by defeating 9th seed Angelique Kerber 6-1 4-6 7-5 on Sunday afternoon.
It certainly seems to be that the 28th seed has finally started to reach her peak in her career as the quarter final appearance follows up on her great run that saw her reach the semi finals of the US Open last year.
The two players have met 4 times in the past with the record being tied at 2 wins a piece however it seems that
Australia is a popular meeting ground as Li and Pennetta have clashed in the country 3 times before with Li edging their series Down Under 2-1.
Pennetta will prove to be a tough opponent for Li on Tuesday but the fourth seed could find herself becoming one of the tournament favourites should she be able to advance to the final four yet again at the Rod Laver Arena.
