Li was excited about his victory. “I was calm throughout the match. I wasn’t affected by the pressure of the world ranking,” Li said after the match.

When asked about his evaluation of Salvatore, the world’s No.3 fencer, Li said, “He is a tough opponent for me. He took great advantage of the rules and he used a lot of false attacks to confuse me during the match.”
