Can Na Li win the French?

Plusses - She's fast, defends well, has reliable groundes. moves up and widens the court well, the serve is less of an issue.

Minuses - She's got maybe three years before the legs go, Henin's back, and the rest of the tour is going to figure out NOT to hit wide to her backhand.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

That's where I stopped reading.

Although I really should have stopped at the title.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Can Na Li win the French?

no....and Henin back isnt a minus IMO.... with her new game it will affect her at RG...... As aggressive as shes trying to be and since she wants to win Wimbledon I'm assuming she'll keep it up on the clay since you only get 2 weeks really between the two tournaments..... Im not sure what Justines chances are at RG, but i think she'll play RG completely different than she has in the past...

And no... Na Li will not win RG......

Re: Can Na Li win the French?

She is an unforced error machine from time to time and that will eventually kill her on clay before winning 7 matches in a row.

Volcana is way off. I actually picture Zheng better for the regard, and is also off to be true as well..

I mean has Na Li ever given signs of breaking through on clay?

Re: Can Na Li win the French?

No. She has never even won a big tournament let alone a slam and her record at the French is not great. However, I am hoping this year she will continue to improve.

Li Na - JJ - Petkovic-Shvedova - Kerber - Vesnina

She "beat" Ana 1-6 ret. and scraped past Schnyder 2-6 7-6 7-6 before being destroyed 6-1 6-0 by Petrova. Not extraordinarily impressive. And Ana is a far better player on clay than Na, even now.

Na Li winning French Open? Not in a million years. Her game doesn't suit clay.

Swiss champs.
