Li Na hopes to continue her winning way at the Wimbledon Championships. But this time on grass, she will need more luck if she would like an equal finish.

At last week's Wimbledon warm-up event in Eastbourne, the world number 4 crashed out in the second round, and Li Na said that she was adjusting her footwork from clay to grass.

Being the third seed in Wimbledon, the highest ever to herself, the French Open champion will likely to have a potential encounter against defending champion Serena Williams in the quarterfinals.

It would be the second meeting for the two as they played each other in last year quarters. The American will be one of the biggest threats for Li, who will try to win her first back-to-back grand slam titles. And plenty seeds also in the top half, world number one Caroline Wozniacki, and Maria Sharapova And both will be tough opponents on grass court.
