Re: Tough at the Top : Chinese Champion Li Na on Life in and Out of Tennis
To the western world, Li Na isn't really a "bad girl" because in the west, the culture is mostly very open and encourages extroversion. However, in China, the culture in general, can be reserved and quite conservative. To a traditional Chinese person, Li would be considered a "bad girl" for her openness, her straight-talking and her fighter attitude. She's not demure, doesn't bow down to her husband and is outspoken in the way she shoots from the hip.
I think Li Na is great. She's fun, sassy, brash, bold, a pioneer in Chinese tennis. Most of all, her heart is the biggest and best thing about her.
