22nd ranked Li Na from China confirmed Sunday (Sep 10th) that she will partner Jelena Jankovic of Sebia and Montenegro at the upcoming China Open WTA tournament.

Li, who has been with compatriot Peng Shuai in the last few years, did not make their names heard in the women's doubles event. The duo were disappointed again at the U.S. Open being humiliated at the first round 7-5, 6-4 by Marta Domachowska from Poland and Jelena Kostanic of Croatia.

The 21-year-old Jankovic, ranked 20th on the WTA world rankings and in good shape recently, staged a dark horse run at the U.S. Open before losing to Justine Henin-Hardenne of Belgium 4-6, 6-4, 6-0 at the quarterfinals.

The Chinese female number one played low-key with the women's singles event which kicks off on September 16.

"The coming contenders include Mauresmo, Davenport, Vaidisova and Kuznetsova, any of whom are higher ranked than me. I just want to play my best. No goal, and no stress, " Li told Xinhua on Sunday.

Li, 24, who created record for Chinese women's tennis by entering Wimbledon Open last eight and making last 16 at the U.S. Open this year, looked easy though she has just come back from the tough U.S. Open.

"I really enjoy the days ahead of the China Open as I rest in the morning and go to fitness center in the afternoon.

"The China Open is followed at heel by Guangzhou International Open and then I will enter for some other events before the year-end Asian Games. It seems hard for me to slow down for break.

"There are good news, I have a good ankle already," said a smiling Li.
