Re: "Li Na is renowned for her touch and point construction"
Yup. Ironic that TF embarrass themselves again by mocking this person for making a very accurate statement (even if, by the looks of his other comments, he made that one accurate statement by accident).
It really amazes me that people who watch so much tennis can still be under the impression that Li is an uber-ballbasher. Do they really watch her matches and genuinely think that she's hitting shots as hard as Kvitova for example does?
Let´s see what you have to say about that in three hours.
You don´t need to be a mad ballbasher to have average point construction. For example take her matches against Radwanska last year. She destroyed Radwanska, but she didn´t hit with much margin for error. It´s not that she strategically outplayed Radwanska with a bullet-proof gameplan. She just couldn´t miss and it was breathtaking to watch. She absolutely destroyed Radwanska, but if she is slightly off the exact same strategy results in a loss like it did in Sydney. If Na Li had great point construction and consistency in her hitting, she´d rape Radwanska every time. If Na Li plays 80% she loses to Radwanska. If Azarenka plays 80% she still wins.
