NaNa did it twice. She gave us fake hope in 2011 AO Final and this match.

Hopefully she'll done fine in those three months of post 2011 AO and post clay season.

Apparently NaNa cried during her post match interview. Has anyone seen it?

Re: Li Na Livescores Thread - Volume 2

Wow, I'm disappointed but in a way it's not so painful for some reason.

She should learn not to take her anger out on her husband so many times. Learn your lesson. It is DETRIMENTAL to your game. Focus on YOURSELF Na and you might start to win those tough three set matches more often. Sigh.

Someone might upload it on youtube later.

NaNa let Kim to pass and sit on the chair first at 6-6 tb She needs to be an evil biatch. She didn't move injured AMG around two days ago. She did the same thing to a-bit-injured-Kim again today. She always got shocked and felt sorry for her injured opponents.

Re: Li Na Livescores Thread - Volume 2

you choke when you feel the pressure, I'm not so sure she was feeling the pressure of the match. she looked calm during the whole match (or at least till the mps). must be something else, I don't know.

At least, she tried to fight back in the third set this time, not like 2011 AO final.

Re: Li Na Livescores Thread - Volume 2

I really think not running for that lob messed her up. I think maybe she thought it would be further away but it was so close.

Re: Li Na Livescores Thread - Volume 2

Why did Ana and NaNa choke against Kim?

Stupid Na! Serves you good for crying in the press conference. The Chinese media did the best thing to her.

Re: Li Na Livescores Thread - Volume 2

Quote:
Q. Bad luck. How did Kim's injury affect you?
How did it affect your game?
NA LI: I mean, I really don't say that. Finally, she win the
match, so...

Q. Can you say anything about how you played at
the end? Because you nearly came back in the third set. You got very
close.
NA LI: Doesn't matter close or far away. In the end I lost the
match. This is only one thing.
I mean, I think I was pretty not bad today. Just unlucky,
yeah.


Q. Can you talk about the tiebreak? On the
fourth match point she lobbed you, but you didn't really try and run for it,
even though I think you may have been able to get to it.
NA LI: During the time, of course was nervous. If you nervous
you could not think too much, right? Yeah.


Q. Do you believe in the year of dragon? Do you
think the year of dragon will be more auspicious for you?
NA LI: Year of dragon start tomorrow, not today.


Q. Last year you had the same with Wickmayer in
Dubai.
NA LI: Yep.


Q. Is there an explanation for it?
NA LI: I don't think so. Different opponent and also different
experience.


Q. Is it a matter of nerves?
NA LI: I just tennis athlete. I don't think it's ‑‑ I mean, if
change one person on the court, I don't think she's one nervous.
Everyone was still pretty nervous. That's just normal. I'm not
special.


Q. Were you affected by the heat today?
NA LI: I mean, I have to be used to. Yeah, if I didn't like I
couldn't tell the tournament I didn't want to play. I have to. So I have to
used that.


Q. In the tiebreak, at one point you seemed to
take your finger to your mouth towards the crowd. Was someone in the crowd
bothering during the tiebreak?
NA LI: Oh, yeah? I do that?

Q. I thought I saw you on television do that.
NA LI: I don't know. I couldn't remember.
liar.

Q. What happened at the beginning of the third
set? Was the loss of the tiebreaker and the match points still in your
head?
NA LI: No, I mean, if over, is over. You couldn't think about
always whether you do it before. You have to think about what you have to
do.
I mean, of course after lose after the tiebreak I was think ‑‑ I
was a little bit, how do you say, worrying about myself because I have four
match points, but I didn't take it. I mean, yeah.


Q. Have you ever had a match where you had four
match points that you didn't take?
NA LI: Yeah, like he say. Last year in Dubai against
Wickmayer. Yeah.


Q. Against Kim last year in Sydney, you turned
0‑5, at 5‑Love down in the first set, you turned it around. Is it easier to
play against an opponent when you're down, when you have nothing to lose
anymore?
NA LI: I didn't really like play the way like that. I really
preferred 5‑Love up. I mean, nobody prefer 5‑Love down to try to come back.


Q. This the first Grand Slam of the year. The
whole year is in front of you. Would you like to change your game against a
particular opponent like Kim, or do you think you'll continue with the same
strategy and same type of game?
NA LI: So what do you think? You think I should change? I
mean, I played this way for 20 years already. I couldn't change for next two
months.



Q. What do you think you'll take away from the
match today going forward?
NA LI: I was think I was play okay today. I mean, nothing
worried about like technique.
So, yeah, like what Kim say. Maybe 6‑2 up in the tiebreak I was
a little bit shocking.
Yeah.


Q. Are you going to head back to China?
NA LI: I don't know yet.


Q. Did you think Kim was at her best level after
a couple of games coming back after her injury?
NA LI: I mean, the tennis was amazing sport. Like between the
opponent to have like, how you say (translated from Chinese off microphone.)
Like if I go forward before, of course opponent have to go back a
little bit. I mean, if she go forward a little I have to go back.
So I couldn't ‑‑ I mean, what I can say is today she play better
than me. Yeah.
