Miami – China's Li Na reached the third round of the Miami Masters on Friday after her intended opponent Alisa Kleybanova withdrew with illness before their match.

The walkover sends the second seed into a contest against the winner from Daniele Hantuchova and American Madison Keys.

Romanian sixth seed Simona Halep also pulled out, citing a toe injury. She will be replaced in the draw by Czech Jana Cepelova, who will face Australian Casey Dellacqua in the second round. – Sapa-AFP
