Indian Wells (United States) (AFP) - Australian Open champion Li Na overcame familiar foe Zheng Jie 6-1, 7-5 on Saturday to reach the third round of the Indian Wells hardcourt tennis tournament. Li, women's top seed in the combined ATP Masters and WTA tournament, breezed through the opening set in just 29 minutes, but found the going tougher in the second when she was broken twice to trail 2-4. Li's current world number two ranking is the highest ever for an Asian player on the WTA Tour. "Because we know so much about each other, me and Zheng Jie," she said.
