Highest-ranked Chinese female player Na Li will probably take part in the next week’s grand slam, even though she had to withdraw from Eastbourne, the ongoing Wimbledon warm-up event, because she had strained a muscle in her chest.
“She decided not play in Eastbourne this week to give her time to recover from the injury. She is unlikely to pull out of Wimbledon,” said Xie Miqing, spokeswomen of the China Tennis Association.
Last year, world No. 18 Na Li reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon which established her as the first Chinese to go that far in a grand slam. (source: Reuters)
