China's Li Na has admitted she has one eye on a brand new sports car, the winner's prize at Stuttgart's WTA tournament, as she prepared to face Petra Kvitova in Friday's quarterfinals.

Li, who reached January's Australian Open final, breezed through Thursday's second-round match in 74 minutes to see off Croatia's Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 6-1, 6-2 in straight sets in her first match of the clay-court season.

With top-seed Maria Sharapova on the other side of the draw for the clay tournament, Li was to face Kvitova, who beat Germany's Julia Goerges 2-6, 7-6(7/4), 6-2 in her second round match.
