MELBOURNE, Australia -- Defending champion Kim Clijsters and runner-up Li Na could meet in the fourth round at this year's Australian Open after being drawn in the same quarter of the draw Friday.

Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki will play Australian Anastasia Rodionova in her first-round match and is in the same half as Clijsters and Li, last year's French Open champion.

In the other half of the draw, five-time champion Serena Williams is in the same section of No. 3 Vera Zvonereva and former Grand Slam champions Svetlana Kuznetsova and Maria Sharapova.

The Australian Open begins Monday.
