Li Na Battles Cibulkova In Aussie Open Final

Li Na and Dominika Cibulkova will compete for the Australian Open title after both enjoyed convincing semi-final victories.
Li dominated against teenager Eugenie Bouchard, racing into a 5-0 lead in 14 minutes before winning 6-2, 6-4 to progress to her third Melbourne final.
Cibulkova produced a stirring display to shock fifth seed Agnieszka Radwanska and reach her first Grand Slam final. The Slovakian broke in the opening game and was in complete control throughout.
Fourth seed Li remains on course for a second Grand Slam title and a first Australian Open victory as her experience told against Canadian Bouchard, who had never previously been beyond the third round of a major.
China’s Li, who reached the last four in Melbourne in 2011 and 2013, came back from match point down in her third-round tie against Lucie Safarova and has not looked back since.
