Kim Clijsters admits that she couldn't believe that she beat Li Na at the 2012 Australian Open.

Kim Clijsters has said that she couldn't believe that she was able to come back to beat Li Na in the fourth round of the 2012 Australian Open.

The Belgian, who was four match-points down in the second set, was able to come from behind to beat the fifth seed and progress to the final eight, despite injuring her ankle in the opening set.

"I can't believe I won," she said. "It knew before the match that it was going to be tough, that it was going to be physically and mentally tough, but obviously I didn't expect this.

"It was amazing to get through, to fight with probably not my best tennis. You just want to try to win each point and not give up."

Clijsters will face either Caroline Wozniacki or Jelena Jankovic in the next round.
