Kim Clijsters beats Li Na to win Australian Open

Kim Clijsters won her second straight Grand Slam title and the fourth of her career, struggling early before beating Li Na 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 on Saturday in the Australian Open final.

The result ended the outstanding run of Li, who became the first Chinese player to reach a Grand Slam singles final.

Li appeared to become upset with some of the Chinese spectators in the crowd in the third set, and asked the chair umpire to intervene. She later complained about the flashes from photographers at center court.

U.S. Open champion Clijsters' win came in her likely last appearance at Melbourne Park -- she said that 2011 could be her last full year on the tour.
