MELBOURNE (AFP) - China's Li Na set her sights on a second Grand Slam title today as she voiced hope that a new, more aggressive approach could help her end her Australian Open jinx.

The world No. 4, who turns 32 next month, said her target for the year was adding to her 2011 French Open win.

"I really wish I can win another Grand Slam. This is the goal for me," said Li, when asked to outline her targets for the year.

She had twice made the Australian Open final and led both times before being overcome by Kim Clijsters in 2011 and Victoria Azarenka last year.

Li reached the season-ending WTA Championships final and finished the year at a career-high world No. 3 ranking, before starting 2014 with victory at the Shenzhen Open.
