LONDON, England - Li Na, Asia's highest-ranked player in tennis history, spent some time at the All-England Club on Sunday, filming a special film about the tournament that will be shown back in China.

Wimbledon has been a very special tournament for Li - though it's the only one of the Grand Slams she has never been to the semifinals of, it was the first one she reached the quarterfinals of, in fact becoming China's first ever Grand Slam quarterfinalist by making a run to the last eight in 2006.

Li took Wimbledon Film around the grounds on Sunday and re-lived all of her best memories from the tournament, including heading to Court 19, where she played her first juniors match in 1999, and to Centre Court, where she played that quarterfinal match with Kim Clijsters in 2006. She also posed next to the Wimbledon 2014 sign and the glass case containing the big prize - the Venus Rosewater Dish.

"I love Wimbledon for its history, and I want people in China to experience it too," she said.

Li is a three-time quarterfinalist at Wimbledon, following up that aforementioned 2006 run with two more quarterfinals in 2010 (falling to Serena Williams) and 2013 (falling to Agnieszka Radwanska).

Check out some more pics from her visit below and on the official IMG Tennis Facebook page.
