China's Li Na began her grass season with just six days left before the start of Wimbledon, with the sixth seed beating Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-4 to reach the second round of the Eastbourne International on Tuesday. 

China's Li Na hits a return during her women's singles match against France's Alize Cornet on the fourth day of the AEGON International tennis tournament in Eastbourne, southern England on June 18, 2013. Li won 6-2, 6-4.
