BEIJING, China - A special celebration event for Li Na was held in Beijing on Saturday, celebrating her Australian Open title and new career-high ranking of No.2, as well as her upcoming birthday.

Organized by IMG and the WTA, the event included dinner, presentations and more - including a Q&A session with Li herself, where she talked about everything from the support of her amazing team, her thoughts on going for No.1 now and a special re-launch of her autobiography, Li Na: My Life.

"I think we all have our own dreams, and when we realize our dreams, we should set new goals for the future," Li said during the Q&A session. "My goal for this year was actually to win another Grand Slam, and I'm very lucky I made it in Australia, so right now I want win another Grand Slam title.

"Maybe it won't happen this year, but I'll do my best."

There was also a special video presentation of highlights from Li's magical run in Melbourne.

"Li Na is a true champion in every sense of the word," Ryan Sandilands, the WTA's CEO of the Asia-Pacific, said. "She is a worldwide star and she has achieved great success on and off the court. Her legion of fans around the world also appreciate her victories, athleticism, fighting spirit and sense of humor. Her accomplishments are truly inspirational and will no doubt motivate the next generation to pick up a racquet and take Chinese tennis to even greater heights. I wish her all the best for the rest of the season as she competes on the Road To Singapore for the WTA Championships."
