I said earlier that I hope that Li loses in the first round. It is tough to say for certain but to me it appeared that she was given a suspiciously easy draw. Maybe it was just coincidence but if the draw was rigged in her favour I am happy to see it did not work.

Though I don't dislike Li,it's a little pathetic for her to lose so easily in her 'home' tournament to a mediocre player in the very first round.It lends credence to the idea that Li will never have a strong champion's mentality--that she's only capable of great play in brief spurts

You really posted that in 2002, Jorn? The quote-link to the exact post doesn't work anymore.

Li was always like that even before she reached her Slam finals,and that's why she'll never be an elite player.She'll be remembered more as an historical footnote who was the first Chinese to ever blah,blah,blah(I'm pretty sure that Li was the first Chinese to ever puke in her strawberries and cream at Wimbledon;we gotta make sure to put THAT in the record books).Hypothetically speaking,she could've been an all-time great if she cared more but,as things currently stand,she's barely fit to fetch Graf's water bottle from an historical perspective

Skyblue,it's not my goal to be a postwhore,so there are threads where I appreciate the input but never--or almost never--post.To answer your question,we all know that Ana is capable of playing great individual matches,especially vs. a finesse player who gets overpowered and can't shake her out of rhythm.Her big problem--we're talking ON-court and ignoring the myriad of PERSONAL problems--is that she can't even excel in back-to-back tourneys...and very rarely even wins an individual,isolated event.This is what makes her a fringe Top 20-caliber player,someone who doesn't have the credentials to enter the Greatness Store so she stands out there in the bitter cold and presses her face against the glass of the streetside display window,desperately peering in and spouting empty rhetoric about gaining access someday

According to some in GM, maybe Beijing is not that well-attended, but the Woz matches seemed to be rather lively, judging by audience sounds in her matches.

I think Caro is very popular there and when all the Chinese girls went out early - Caro was the player they naturally switched to. Attendances must have suffered with Li going out early.

Caroline Wozniacki

Agnieszka had a tough loss at the US Open but otherwise she has had a very nice summer/fall. All the more impressive when you consider where she was this time last year. I thought she made a mistake by coming back so soon after her foot injury but obviously I was wrong.

One of my friends is a technician so this'll get fixed soon,but I was a little discouraged this morning when the shower head came flying off after I'd only slightly turned up the tap a bit.....Then,upon regaining my composure,I realized that I still had plenty of water pressure coming from where the head had fallen off...and only had slight difficulty in washing my hair since the water was coming forth at an almost straight downward angle......Things could've been FAR worse

Still a tight race for the #8 YEC spot---Aga has the lead but she's resting this week while Petko plays Linz and Marion's in Osaka...they're both #2 seeds.Those MM titles would allot them 280 pts. and put them in a virtual dead heat with Aga

It seems Petkovic is out of Linz.
