Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

I like her but IMO she's way to inconsistent to do that

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

If she takes Beijing title and has a strong YEC it is very possible. Considering Azarenka sucks ATM I could see her making YEC final and Randwanska is in medicore form anyway

Twenty-one slams.

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

Right, Aga is in mediocre form lately
She managed to win just 9 matches out of last 10
Very mediocre, indeed

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

Li missed the boat with this one, she had chances to be the YE#3 but she needed to reach the final here and perform better than Radwanska and Sharapova in Istanbul. Now it's very unlikely and in January she'll have the immediate challenge of defending good pre-AO results and the AO final. Over the course of next year I expect Serena and at least two younger players to perform better than Li in most tournaments. In short, I don't think she'll ever reach #3. Nonetheless a great career.

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

She isn't consistent enough to take #3. Na has a better possibility in beating Masha than taking her spot.

never


71 Anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising (1 August–2 October 1944)
Result: German victory, destruction of the city.
150,000–200,000 Polish civilians killed by Germans, mostly from mass executions. 700,000 expelled from the city.

You never know, but I don't think Li will make it to the YEC final, and less after seeing the way she played today. She's too inconsistent and erratic, even if her peak is potentially so great, but, unlike Radwanska, she's almost guaranteed to throw at least one total shitfest display. If Azarenka manages to do something in these three weeks about that thing that passes now as her serve she still should have a better chance than Li.

She can if Masha doesn't play Istanbul.
