Having not played a competitive match since the Australian Open, no one knew what to expect from Li this fortnight but she's played some brilliant tennis and has never looked rusty at all. She saw off Kiki Bertens, Varvara Lepchenko and Garbine Muguruza without dropping a set before losing to top seed Serena Williams in the final.

Li has never been past the quarters of this tournament but for a while it looked like she might upset Serena as she won five straight games to take control of the second set before Serena hit back to win 6-3, 7-6(5).

Li is no stranger to beating world number 1s. She beat Serena at Stuttgart in 2008 and Caroline Wozniacki at the 2011 Australian Open. However despite Serena seemingly struggling with a hip injury which restricted her movement to her backhand, Li was unable to capitalise, tensing up a little as she came close to levelling the match at one set all.   

"I had chances but I didn't hold,," Li said. "She's the best player in the world, so if you don't take your chances, she will never give you a chance again. But I still have to see it in a positive way. I played well here. I just have to continue to work with my team and get ready for the clay court season. I'm looking forward to the clay court season because I'm healthy and hitting the ball well."
