Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

Masha's going to take a big hit to her points total over the next couple of months, and she's not too far behind Aga. So I guess anything is possible. The problem is she's defending so many points right at the start of next year (and also that she's not playing in Tokyo for mysterious reasons).

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

It is really hard to say. With Sharapova being out during Asian season, Li's chances are biger than anytime in last two years, since Serena/Azarenka motivation will probably not be as big as it was during USO series and as big as it will be at YEC. There we have Radwanska who is one of the most clever players I have ever seen on tour, so I expect her to use the advantage and overtake #3 from Sharapova.

Li is always there, but she still has random loses in 3rd rounds or QFs, which barely happens to Serena/Azarenka/Radwanska.

So, it's really hard to say. +Why she doesn't play in Tokyo?!
