LONDON (AP) — Second-seeded Li Na of China advanced to the second round at Wimbledon with a 7-5, 6-2 win over Paula Kania of Poland on Monday.

Li, the 2011 French Open champion, rallied to win the last four games of the first set after being down a service break at 5-3.

Kania fought off two match points and broke Li's serve at 5-1 but Li closed out the match in the following game.

Li has advanced to the quarterfinals three times in seven previous trips to Wimbledon.

Li was the highest seeded woman in action on the first day of the tournament. Top-seeded Serena Williams is scheduled to play Tuesday.
