Tennis - China's Li Na made a successful return to the tour on Thursday with a second round win at the Sony Open Tennis event in Miami. Li Na had not played since the Australian Open in January where she reached the finals afer hurting her ankle during her loss to Victoria Azarenka.

The 5th ranked Chinese woman defeated Dutch Kiki Bertens 63 61 and commented after her win, "I wasn't nervous before the match today, I was excited. For the last six or seven weeks I haven't played any tournaments so I was happy to win my first match after such a long time. There were a lot of fans there to support me today, I was like, 'Wow!' My game was pretty good today, I followed the plan of what I should do. I just had to believe in myself that I could do it."

Also moving into the third round of the event was world no. 4 Agneszka Radwanska. The Polish woman won her 20th match on tour in 2013 with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Hsieh Su-Wei.

Radwanska, who won here last year, commented after her win, "I was happy to have a quick match. The first match is always a little bit tough and tricky, especially after Indian Wells, where we had a little bit of different conditions. It was a really special tournament for me because I was really playing a lot of good matches against top players and not even losing a set. I definitely have great memories from here. And the final was a very good match. Hopefully I can play the same level of tennis this year. I will do everything to hold the trophy again."
