Tennis: Li advances to fourth round at Miami

China's fifth-seeded Li Na smacked 19 winners and fought off a late comeback bid to defeat American Varvara Lepchenko 6-2, 6-4 Saturday to reach the fourth round of the WTA and ATP Miami Masters event. Li had been sidelined for seven weeks after hurting her left ankle in the Australian Open final, which she lost to Victoria Azarenka. With Saturday's win, she improved to 16-2 on the season and booked a date in the round of 16 against the winner of a later match between Danish ninth seed Caroline Wozniacki and Spain's Garbine Muguruza.
