She's good on the stuff.
Evren so, apparently her match against Ivanovic was very close.... many deuce games.
Na Li is the best Chinese Player, I have been saying it for a while.
Perhaps Peng CAN be better.... But Peng has no margin for error. So i think Na Li really is the total package.

I am afraid that China will spend money to push Na, Jie, Shuai, Tian Tian, Ting and Yan for the 2008 Olympics but will then stop after that :tape: :sad: so more promising juniors have no hope

i love the fact that the chinese girls say they hate clay and yet last year zheng and li were both finalists at tour events, and this the first ever all chinese final came on clay!

Impressive for Na, but I'm pretty sure retirements count on the official record

Li Na has the potential to be great on every surface, and its a shame injurues got to her last spring at the peak of her career. Only a win or two away from breaking back into the top 50 aswell

I don't necessarily think thats true. The Chinese will continue to care about the Olympics no matter where it is. Also, China is likely to be in the World Group of Fed Cup by then, and I'm sure they want to do well there

I agree with you and I didn't understand/believe the original comment.

The chinese players are under pressure after winning the gold-medal in doubles in Athen, aren´t they?
And in Fed Cup I´m sure they´ll do well in the future. In playoffs in July they play at home vs Germany who probably play without Groenefeld.

Retirements count, w/o does not.

She may have a good record on it, but can you blame her for hating the clay? 3 rets. :eek:

Oh, I thought you meant her ranking when she got injured last year. She nearly broke the Top 30. :)

She certainly has a strong game when it's working but it breaks down too often i find.

She had Serena on the ropes in Australia and then capitulated.

That would be Berlin :p

And she only lost one match on clay and retired in two other defeats and she was not behind in those. :eek:

She is a far better player than her ranking suggests and that will show once she gets a full year without injuries in. :)
