World No. 5 Li Na and former World No. 1 Jelena Jankovic will fight in the 2013 WTA Championships round robin match, schedule to kick off on Thursday 24th October, 2013 at 14:05 GMT at the Sinan Erdem Dome.

Former French Open champion Li Na has overcome against Italian Sara Errani in the Season-Ending WTA Championships opening round robin match with a 6-3, 7-6. Chinese top ranked Li Na is looking one of the heavy favorite to clinch WTA Istanbul title, but she will have to face tough challenge against Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka.

28-year-old Jelena Jankovic has stunned World No. 2 Victoria Azarenka in the Season-Ending WTA Championships opening round robin match, where she wants to continue similar form against Li Na.

Both the players are meeting for the 10th time on the WTA Tour, where Li Na leads with a 5-4 head-to-head record against Jankovic. The pair last meet at the 2013 US Open fourth round and Li Na won the match in two sets with a 6-3, 6-0 score line. As per the predictions, Li Na is considered as one of the hot prospect to win the round robin match on Thursday at the Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul.
