Yes here in China's Nike stores, there is huge billboard of Federer on the men's side of store and huge billboard of Na on the women's side of store :hearts: (they don't pick Nadal, Sharapova or Serena)

But Na popular outside China too. No wonder Nike select Na and Azarenka (along with Serena) to model their new outfit before USO

It's possible that after Federer, Nadal, S. Williams and Sharapova she'd be one of their more marketable players.

Good for Na Li :yeah: Im glad tennis is spreading throughout the world to places like Asia. I was shocked to find that Table Tennis was the national sport of Japan (unless Im totally wrong) which puzzled me - since tennis is a far more intense and interesting sport. At least its a sport you can still watch from the other side of the room :tape:

Na Li is definitely more profitable than Serena if you take into the fact that Nike pays a lot of more money to Serena that Na, and also the fact that Serena represents a country that is one-fourth the population that Na represents.

Thats grossly flawed on so many levels. Serena is an international icon - her appeal reaches markets throughout the world - her talent gives Nike exposure on the highest stages in the game - exposure that is totally invaluable to them. Nike didnt get to where they are today by throwing vast sums of money away without considering the profits - they will be well aware of how much Serena is worth to them and how to maximise thier profits.
