Li Na back at Wimbledon – as a legend

Chinese star Li Na ended her professional career at Wimbledon in 2014, with a third-round loss to Barbora Strycova.

Four years – and two kids – later, she’s back.


Li is exactly five months younger than another mom, Serena Williams, who is back at the All-England Club after a two-year absence and is in the singles semifinals.

Li is playing hit-and-giggle, though, in doubles with Japan’s Ai Sugiyama.

She and Sugiyama won their first match in the legends invitational on Monday, against Tracy Austin and Anne Keothavong.

She looks fantastic. Watch the match here.
