she has the ability, but can she actually use it and be consistent?

Re: Do you think Na Li has the ability to win a grand slam?

I think sadly no. There is too much competetion for Na to become a grand-slam winner. There are only four a year, and they are already being dominated by MaSha, Justine and the Williams.

Na could easily win a couple of Tier I's (or Premium Events, as they will be called next year), but think a grand slam is out of her reach. I could however be proved completly wrong.

Re: Do you think Na Li has the ability to win a grand slam?

Talent wise, Yes. But she's inconsistent, and I don't think she's very mentally tough.
Just My Opinion.


Forever my girl

Re: Do you think Na Li has the ability to win a grand slam?

Ability yes, but then again I think almost everyone in the top 20 "can" win a Slam. (I use the word can rather loosely here, of course). But to really win a slam, you need much more than just a great game (and there are so many parts of Na's game she has to improve), you also need a lot of confidence, and Na just isn't there yet.

Re: Do you think Na Li has the ability to win a grand slam?

Honestly I would say no.

Everytime Li Na is about to make some real break through, she loses to herself in a very disappointing way. Take the Knapp match for example.
I think Li Na has ability to beat some good players in the first few rounds. But when it comes to semi finals or finals, usually she would just regain the name of UE queen.

But how I wish, how I wish that she could have less than 20 UEs for every match.

Re: Do you think Na Li has the ability to win a grand slam?

Yes ... said like i said last year when I watched her play in Miami. Na has ALOT of talent. She htis the ball hard but she moves it around well and when shes playing well shes thinking on the court. WILL she win a slam? I dont know buit does she have the TALENT? certainly ..... less talented players have won slams

Team Williams
Princess of Power: Serena Williams
21 time grand slam champion, Tours best fighter, Olympic Champion
Queen of Grass: Venus Williams
7 time grand slam champion, Olympic Champion,
The Tour Standard! .... still haha!
