The officals of the tennis association said that whether Li Na would join the country's team or not ,all that is depended on her attitude.
That is to say,chances are great while she's doing great.
Because tennis is not yet a highly-professioned game in China,almost no company or person is willing to support player going abroad to competite,all the money they are using to travel around the world comes from the goverment.So is she or he is not in the country's team,chances for them to go abroad are slim.
Now some of the tennis fans in China are calling for finacial support for Li Na,but seems that there need to be a good organizition to collect the money.It's a good will but hard to come true.
And worse more , it it very difficult for Chinese people to go abroad becasue of some certain systems running in China.They need more passports than you can imagine and they need to wait some time until they are allowed to go abroad.So u see,the enviroment in China prevent players from becoming a top hitter,in some facts.
But remember that Li Na is really a talent player.
