Beijing: Li Na says she is hoping for a "perfect ending" at the French Open, where she will vie to become China's first Grand Slam singles champion - with the backing of a proud nation.
"In the final again. It was very tiring but it's worth it as I worked really hard," Li posted on her microblog account on Sina.com shortly after defeating Russia's Maria Sharapova in straight sets in Thursday's semi-final match.
"I hope there will be a perfect ending. Come on!"
