Well, Morita also starting hitting more consistently.

I was impressed by Ayumi, she hits such a hard, clean ball and has good accuracy...just occasionally hit too long. Her serve has improved greatly and she's moving really well...I think this result will give her confidence, she's got such a fun game to watch.

Stop with these chokes at the end of the of matches, Li :smash:

If she stops these mini chokes, I can see her in the final, if she beats Venus.

Chinese-favoured scheduling helped Na Li win this one.

I really hope Na can get a medal! I really think she is China's best hope, and when she plays well she can beat anyone! Im seeing silver for some reason though.

:hug: At least Ayumi won a match

I like Ayumi too. She's cute. Isn't she the one who hits with two hands on both sides?

Na Li's game reminds me sooo much of Lindsay Davenport's. They both hit hard and on the sweet spot so that it makes that special sound. If you watch their techniques, they're very similar. Of course Lindsay is ten leagues ahead, but still. lol.:) Who does Na Li play next?

Yeah and she hits the ball realllly well, she was out hitting Li Na in the second half of the second set...just a few too many shots that just barely missed. She's the most natural and talented two-hander on both sides I've see since Seles.

OOOH!! I want to see some of her matches. There's nothing on youtube. And since she hasn't played many pro matches, there's not going to be much on this forum. I wouldn't mind seeing some of her junior matches. I know she was a runnerup in the Wimbledon girls final losing to Wozniacki. :) I'm assuming Ayumi hits really flat, like Seles. ;)
