Both players suffered from ups and downs in the second set. They finished six breaks in the set (three for each) to enter the tiebreaker. Li was leading 3-0 in the tiebreak, but the double fault disturbed her pace. Makarova took advantage to take the tiebreak 7-5.
The final set stood in favor of Li again as the top Chinese singles player won four straight games after 2-2 to end the match 6-2.

Li will next face world number one Serena Williams, who won 12 consecutive games to beat Spaniard Suarez Navarro 6-0 Indians Manny Ramirez Jersey , 6-0, in the semi-final.
"If you only think about your opponent, of course, you already lose the match before you step onto the court," said Li.

Former world number one Lleyton Hewitt lost 6-3, 3-6, 6-7 (7-3) Indians Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey , 6-4, 7-5 to Russian Mikhail Youzhny in a round of 16 match, which lasted 3 hours 58 minutes.
Hewitt, who outclassed sixth seed Juan Martin Del Potro in an even longer five-set thriller in the second round, was favored to win again when the fifth set went to 5-5, but Youzhny broke the Australian before eventually winning on his second match point.
Youzhny will play world number one Novak Djokovic, who eliminated Marcel Granollers 6-3, 6-0, 6-0.
