Re: Why on earth is Na Li playing so well now?

What's so confusing? She took months off, healed her body, got fit and probably has practiced hard til the cows came home.
Granted I didn't expect her to come in and win a tournament so fast, it's not surprising she has come back stronger than ever.

Re: Why on earth is Na Li playing so well now?

She has just taken some time out and probably worked her ass off to get fully fit again! She is a good player you know!!!!

Re: Why on earth is Na Li playing so well now?

She was an exceptional player with tremendous shot making skills before the injury. But you're right, it's surprising how fast she 'came back' from the injury. Granted she didn't play the "Elite" yet, but this was a great start for her.

well na li is definitely a good player...she just had some injury problems hindering her to reach her potential...if she takes care of her body and gets lucky to have an-injury free year she'll definitely get high up in the rankings..

Re: Why on earth is Na Li playing so well now?

I have to admit, unlike her faithful followers on this board, i didn't give her much of a chance of even making the quarters of the gold coast let alone winning it. Sure, she has been a good player in the past - and was improving further still when she had the injury. I didn't think she would beat Sybille, and it seems since that match she got even more confident and stronger. If she keeps this unbelieveable confidence, who knows how high she can actually go. The chinese players in this era are a great addition to the wta tour and they are always smiling whatever and very well tempered - an attribute which is missing from some of the top stars repetoire. The number of well mannered chinese an asian people on this board prove that they are good ambassadors for tennis worldwide.
