Indian Wells (United States) (AFP) - Australian Open champion Li Na booked her semi-final berth at the Indian Wells hardcourt tennis tournament with a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 win over Dominika Cibulkova. China's Li, the world number two who is the top seed in the event, reprised her triumph over Slovakia's Cibulkova in the final in Melbourne, although she labored two hours and 36 minutes to do it. Li was firmly in control in the opening set, breaking Cibulkova to start the match. Li won the next three games, but couldn't hold off Cibulkova any longer as the Slovakian held to force a third set.
