China's Li Na crashed out of the Olympic tournament in the first round as the world number 11 was beaten 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 by Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova at Wimbledon on Saturday.

Li had been China's best hope of taking a medal in the singles, but the former French Open champion struggled to find any momentum against the big-hitting Hantuchova and was knockd out in one hour and 42 minutes.

The defeat completed a dispiriting month for the 30-year-old, who also suffered a surprise Wimbledon second round exit against Sabine Lisicki.

Li, who became the first Chinese player to win a Grand Slam when she triumphed in Paris in 2011, made 24 unforced errors and served five double-faults.
