Very realistic, she has the game to be be best. She just needs to prove it.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

No. Not that I think she doesn't have the capability, but setting goals for yourself like this... ehh, I wouldn't. Too much pressure.

Well for someone like Na who was close to top 3 and has won a slam, as well as with her capability and the current state of women's tennis, I'd say it's a totally realistic goal.

unless she could just aim to win the China slams and stay top 10 which she has already done so far.

The women's tour was the same last year and she managed to blow 4 match points against Kim, get bageled by Shvedova, kicked out of Wimbledon twice, and lose to Robson in the USO.

I should stop talking, because I love Li, but her slam performances since winning one have sucked.

Setting ambitious goals is the way to go.

According to a Chinese media, she said her goal for 2013 is to reach TOP 3 AND manage to win another Grand Slam again.

Um...She's a Grand Slam champion. When you've already won a slam, your yearly goal isn't to win Bastad - it's to win more slams. This isn't even thread-worthy.

But for a 30 year-old woman who never achieved so much before 2011 is still an really ambitious goal, especially no Asian has done it prior to her... Hope she can reach the goal, stay healthy and play more seasons...

not necessarily as proven by Radwanska, Zvonareva

and also by Stosur, Schiavone, Li not being top 3 even with a Major win
