Will turn 22 on
What she’s done since last summer
- Made back-to-back hard-court Grand Slam third round appearances at the US and Australian Open
- Became WTA co-champion at the Grampians Trophy
- Cracked the Top 100
- Li has moved up 78 spots in the WTA rankings since the beginning of 2020
Li has brought her best tennis to the post-pandemic landscape, reaching the third round at two of the last three major tournaments. She became a rare co-champion in her first WTA final, sharing the Grampians Trophy title with Anett Kontaveit when the championship match was canceled due to a snap COVID-19 lockdown.
