Question Na Li's Schedule for Rest of 2004?

Well we know that Na Li is not on any more commitment lists for the rest of the year. But it is possible for her to take WC as she did for Beijing and Guangzhou

IMO I think she should take a WC into Tashkent, Linz qualifying and then Quebec but of course Chinese Federation will not allow her

Did anybody who watched the match in China hear what Na Li said about her plans for the rest of the year? If I have to wait until Australia then

She'll be competing in the Chinese circuit, therefore, she will not travel aboard probably until next year's Australian Open. She can enter maindraw.

I'm sorry but for people who wants to watch Li Na playing in a WTA tour,our dreams will not come true this year.
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.

BYW,zheng jie is able to go abroad to play for she is member of the national team.

And for peng shuai,it must be that she has someone support her with money,so she can afford to travel around the world.

you shouldn't say it , China's professional tennis isn't going business, country teamer can have money go aborad,but ever you herad which player of other countries give their players spent money? That's professional tennis.

though tennis in china isn't popular , our country want to improve our tennis , fact, national team players can have enough money from country , help them get to play go aboard.

It's none of our country , If they have enough money,they can go anywhere they want,they have enough freedom. Wouldn't charge our country , It's only because our country haven't tennis culture . None want to supply the tennis players.

Li Na's ranking(comeback) COME ON!!!
-----On Octo. 4 1st WTA Tour singles title No. 92
-----On Sept. 27 after China Open No. 145
-----On May 1st ITF Women's Circuit singles title No.207
-----On May, 2004 Li Na come back No.0

Well if Na Li goes on the tour and has decent results, shouldn't she be able to support herself with her prize money?
