Na to continue streak for beating defending champs in slam final?

The first time she won the slam, she beat defending champ Schiavone in RG 2011.
Now she has another chance to duplicate that success. Will she do it?

Another note is that she will beat 5 seeded players in a row if she wins the title, better than she did in RG'11 (but RG'11 was more impressive as she beat 4 top 10 seeds in a row: Kvitova, Azarenka, Sharapova and Schiavone). Her stint here will be Cirstea, Goerges, Radwanska, Sharapova and Azarenka(tbc).

I actually think "6" is her lucky number. Remember the number of seed she was when she won FO in 2011?

Hope she will prevail again this time

Aga's like a lucky charm. I think the eventual AO champions defeated her in 2011 and 2012.

She also beat Masha and Cirstea in RG'11. Maybe Vika too if she wins.

Hopefully. She deserves an AO title. She always plays so well in Australia.

And she's also a darling in Australia. They love her here.

The Chinese are really into numerology as well. Not sure if Na is. But maybe the stars have aligned for her.
