Things I would say about the Li match:
1) Li doesn't return nearly as well as Clijsters, so Laura (providing she serves well) should get free points.
2) Li does not handle pressure that well always, especially if it's an AA match, she really didn't play well for most of the match today.
3) Li did not serve that well today, for the part of the match that I saw. Given how well Laura returned today, this would be critical!
4) Li does have Carlos on her side, and, although Laura has improved, she still has work to do and has weaknesses that can be exploited by a tactical genius like Carlos (IF Li can execute)
To be honest, I'm just hoping Laura can go out there and play well and get a respectable result. It's a very different situation now, no one really expected her to beat Kim, but now the pressure is different, I'm very interested to see how she handles it, it will say a lot about her!
