As Steven doesn't have access to TF atm he would like to say it was said in jest, he's sorry and he's Asian.

Yes Li Na! Slowly but surely becoming my #1 fave!

Resident fan of the ever slumping Karolina Wozniacki.

I think it is not that.
I watched Maria play Na many times, and even though Maria was winning last year, I couldn't believe it each time how much of an awkward matchup for Maria it is. Her shots and serve go straight into Li Na's strikezone. While Li Na's shots go into a very inconvenient zone for Maria.
Rome's final, last year was exactly same match. It's just that Li choked at 6:4, 4:0. But it looked exactly same.
Just a bad match up for Maria.
I expect Vika to handle Li routinely.

I would usually think the same but she might be down because of all the media harassment.

I dont think so. Ive seen worst about her. She usually ignores it and moves on. She probably doesnt wanna think about it even though people will try their hardest to see her crack. But im sure she wont think about it.

Re: Li Na def Maria Sharapova 6-2 6-2

Yeah, one thing that you have to admire about Vika is that she doesn't seem to give a flying fuck about going out of her way to be likeable. She plays to win, and that's it. I think she'll deal with the media harassment pretty well.

I do wonder whether Na is going to feel any negative effects from being the crowd favourite. Playing in Shenzen just before the AO was probably good preparation for how the crowd will be tomorrow ...

She only complained when the crowd was totally on Aussie-Kim's side in the last two years.

And If Vika serves poorer than Maria, then Na will keep attack those weak 2nd serves with her improved ROS.
