SHENZHEN, China - Defending champion Li Na and Peng Shuai advanced Friday to set up an all-Chinese final at the Shenzhen Open. Top-seeded Li defeated Germanys Annika Beck 6-1, 6-3, while fifth-seeded Peng advanced in a walkover when American Vania King withdrew with a right thigh injury. "Itll be a tough match tomorrow," Li said. "Were quite familiar with each other and have improved a lot over the last year. But no matter what, Im quite looking forward to the final." Li was leading 6-1, 5-0 Friday when Beck came back to reel off three straight games, but the former French Open champion regrouped to close out the match. King said she began feeling pain in her leg during her win over second-seeded Sara Errani in the second round and pulled out to rest before the Australian Open, which begins on Jan. 13. "It was a really difficult decision for me to pull out because I hate losing and not competing," King said. "But I just have to look out for my health." Saturdays final will be just the second in WTA history featuring two Chinese players. Li lost the first when she retired against Zheng Jie at Oeiras in 2006. Li has a 5-1 record against Peng, including a 4-0 mark at tournaments in China. Los Angeles Kings Jersey Black Friday Deals .
