Former tennis great Chris Evert said Li Na is destined for more Grand Slams and a place in the Hall of Fame after the Australian Open win cemented her position as the most influential female player of the past decade.

Li's final victory over Slovak Dominika Cibulkova on Saturday gave her a second major following her 2011 French Open title, a triumph that made her Asia's first singles Grand Slam champion.

Evert, the winner of 18 Grand Slam titles, joined WTA Tour chief Stacey Allaster in hailing the Chinese's achievements at a timely promotional event for the end of year championships in Singapore.
