"Every time we play, Kvitova is tough," Li said. "I have to stay back and play defense. She really doesn't give me a lot of space to follow my game plan. And even when I was up a set and 5-2 she kept fighting - when she got back to 5-5 I tried to come forward in the court and get back to my game."
"I'm very happy to be in my first semifinal here - I always seemed to be stuck in the quarterfinals!"
"Bethanie plays a lot of doubles and can do a lot of things on the court," Li said. "She likes to play aggressive and come to the net. I will have to play deep to keep her at the baseline. She has had a good week and should be confident - but I'm doing well too, so I think it will be a good match!"
