Clearly, this is Li's event of choice. Doing well in Melbourne speaks to a player's off-season work ethic and it would seem Li is no slacker. I featured her here last year as the Curtain Call for Australian Open 2010 Day 11. A first-time Chinese champion would have been exciting but Clijsters is certainly worthy, reaffirming once again her decision to come out of retirement.
