New coach for Li NA

Michael Mortensen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Mortensen), Denmark's Fed Cup captain / Danish Eurosport commentator / Caro's part time coach.
He was doing on court coaching for Li Na at 5-4 in the 1st and again at 5-4 in the 2nd set agains MJMS.

Li Na seems to like Scandinavian coaches who have coached Caro. First the Swedish Thomas Högstedt (Sharapova's current coach) and now Michael Mortensen.

Sorry, but MJMS ground game is completely absent throughout the whole year... :shrug:

When Li stepped it up in the first set, Maria had no chance, but she ccould have taken more advantage of Li's choke to go in a final set.. :o

Li cracked under the slightest pressure, so fragile.

She is gone soon.

Li not back to form but she is getting there. A nice win and pretty good stats.

Still shitty from Martinez, but at least she is moving and defending better than in Stuttgart.

Okay from Li Na.

NaNa chokes in 1st rounds not even major matches.. Sigh.
whatever win is a win

Iveta is next, hope for errors from her than :oh:

Good match from Na considering the circumstances (bad form, clay, tricky matchup), played well for the most part, little choke at 5-3 but that's pretty much expected I guess

Good to see Na playing well :cheer:

It for a moment in the second set looked like MJMS was going to fold, but good signs :yeah: :hug:

Any match where Na has more winners than UEs (especially on clay) is a good match for her. Hope she can keep improving her form. The tour needs her competing at the top level like in Australia and giving her humorous interviews.

Her whole career you mean. She has no ground game.

She can only play her game if she is allowed to play her game, but not against that sort of pace from Li. If Martinez-Sanchez can't get into the net, she's challenger level.

She is gone soon.

She needs to have more patience and some beer. Then she will be a firecracker that http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb103/ken_winstonitoh/1-1.gif http://iss.cet.edu/electricity/pages/images/B/b11_4.jpgis.
