Li Na beats Kudryavtseva in 1st round of Wimbledon

French Open champion Li Na safely negotiated her opening match at Wimbledon, defeating Alla Kudryavtseva of Russia 6-3, 6-3.

The third-seeded Li broke serve four times Tuesday en route to a routine win over the No. 72-ranked Kudryavtseva.

Li became the first Chinese player to win a Grand Slam singles title when she beat Francesca Schiavone in the French Open final this month. She is trying to become the seventh woman to achieve a French Open-Wimbledon double in the Open era.
