Li rolled her ankle twice in losing the final of the women’s singles at Melbourne Park to world No 1 Victoria Azarenka last Saturday.

“It’s sore, so I will see the doctor on Monday,” Li told reporters on a conference call. She has been recuperating at home in China and visiting family since her near-miss at this year’s first grand slam.

Providing she is fit, the 30-year-old would return to action at the Qatar Total Open in Doha from February 11-17, she said.
