She can do it, i mean she can trouble the top players thats for sure, and she has a slam in her belt. So why not?

Why she used OR word? She is capable to do both things. I find her as a strong contender at AO, the strongest after Serena.

At least she's not aiming for number one, like some other people
I think it's great, it's both ambitious and modest, she blatantly says she can't be the best.

Re: Li's New Year's resolution: "I want to be top 3 or win a Grand Slam"

I think it seems like a good sign from Li - I felt like last year she played the slams like someone who had already achieved what they wanted to and was no longer giving everything... she has the game to hang with everyone (especially at the AO and French) so if she has the drive and a little consistency she can definitely threaten another slam run. She's also one of a very few players who has the speed and power to play Serena without being made to look dreadful (Ok, the H2H is 1-6 to Serena, but unlike a slower big hitter type of girl, all those matches have been a contest) I think she has every right to have a goal like that, and it could be the spur she needs to make another good run at a slam.

I think what is most impressive is that she decided to go with Carlos Rodriguez's plans for her (whether they bear fruit remains to be seen) and is willing to make what seem to be fairly major changes this late in her career. It shows she still has serious goals, and deservedly so. If she keeps her head about her, she is certainly capable of achieving both goals.

So she has to be better than Williams, Azarenka or Sharapova

Well, after missed the 2nd slam in Melbourne, she finally made it to Top 3.

I should stop talking, because I love Li, but her slam performances since winning one have sucked.
2012 was bad, but 2013, she had a QF, a semi and s final.

Interesting. And it happened. A little vodun to have Sharapova re-injure her shoulder and voila!
