Re: Predict Li Na's ranking after RG 2012
Depending on how she does in Rome, she will be 9th seed in RG. One could say it may depend on the RG draw, but then again, she had one of the most terrible draws ever last year and still did pretty well there. Li is playing relatively solid, she is unable to beat the top players so far, but she was uncharacteristically consistent against lower ranked ones. She can make the QF in RG.
She'd drop to 13th place, but not much lower, mostly because competition in that sector is in a slump or injured or not really expected to do great things in RG, like Petkovic, Lisicki, Zvonareva, Kirilenko etc. pp.
