Na Li- Why even bother?

I'm just watching her match against Elena, and I'm wondering why Na Li even came out to play the match. It's like she can't be bothered to play, hitting error after error, just mindless from her. After about ten minutes, she's aleady 4-0 down.

Seems like she's tanking the first set.

Re: Na Li- Why even bother?

She's played like this all week
I watched her against Errani and Makarova and she is the most inconsistent player

Re: Na Li- Why even bother?

She can play terrible, and she can play amazing.

Where do you see this match? (What channel, and is there an internet feed?)

Re: Na Li- Why even bother?

I mean, it's not like she was up 6-4 5-3, had match points, and then had a total meltdown losing 4-6 7-5 6-0.

But it's the start of the match, at least try.

Re: Na Li- Why even bother?

But I must say, Elena looks impressive. Whenever Li Na can keep the ball in play, Elena has a nice smooth confident hit on the ball.

Re: Na Li- Why even bother?

I always remember her match against Patty from last year in Berlin. She made error after error for a set and three quarters and right when she was on the brink of losing, she pulls out the most amazing winners and went on to win the match in 3 sets

Why couldn't she be more inconsistent against Venus.

Re: Na Li- Why even bother?

People, of COURSE she's inconsistent!
Na Li is a player who has flat groundstrokes and is therefore an agressive player.
Dementieva placed her balls far on the end line, so Li was lie 4 metres behind the baseline, and a person who plays that far away from the net with flat groundstrokes won't even get the ball over the net.
It's a question of tennis physics.

Venus Williams Li Na Petra Kvitova
