Na Li should just go *beep* herself as a current RG champ:o
even Sandra Zahlavova or Julia Cohen can play a better match then she does tonight :o

Worst match of the year. Hands down.

Li Na was absolutely dismal in this tournament.

Only a hampered Sharapova (recent pigeon) made her win a match and look good here.

Sharapova should be falling out of her seat knowing she lost to you. Just two absolutely dismal showings here against Stosur and Azarenka!!

Shoot! A cold ass, off the street, off viral infection Bartoli, is playing better than Li Na now!!

Get your head together, and better luck next year Na. You can do it!!

Earn all that new money your making!!!

Sam wasn't even that good today. She made a lot of errors herself, but Na just made more, and by the second set Li Na mentally checked out.

Terrible!

Oct 28th, 2011, 07:19 PM
Na was so brain dead. Serving to Sam's forehand, really?? :help: Otherwise, no need to analyze this one. Na is brain dead and hits a perfect ball for Sam, and she can't stand the top spin.

Na was so brain dead. Serving to Sam's forehand, really?? :help: Otherwise, no need to analyze this one. Na is brain dead and hits a perfect ball for Sam, and she can't stand the top spin.

Plus Na really needs pace and rhythm from her opponent to do well so that she can redirect that pace herself, because when she has to generate her own pace she ALWAYS makes a ton of errors. Although Sam obviously has an monstrous forehand due to the spin, it really doesn't have much raw pace on it, plus she throws up loads of junk on the backhand side, so Na really can't establish a rhythm against Stosur ... so it'll probably always be a nightmare match-up for her.

Na, please rehire Mortenson over the offseason :sobbing:

I really felt for Na. I might have to eat some Haagen-Dasz to comfort myself.

She really needs a sports psychologist and just a life psychologist so she can get back on track. Too much pressure. Would be funny, though, if she came back and won AO 2012. Li Na, that is.

Oh dear NaNa :sobbing: Thought she would lose but didn't expect a bagel and a breadstick :o

You better hire Mortensen again before Wozniacki does if you want to defend at least half of your points in the AO and FO...

If you exclude Na's 5 best tournaments this year (Sydney, AO, Madrid, Rome, RG) she is 8-14 from her other tournaments... is that really top 5 worthy?

I don't really think that she was low on confidence. It's a question of preparation. I mean, no professional athlete would ever stop for 3 weeks in the middle of the season just because he/she didn't feel like practicing the sport...

TBh she's doing pretty well in this half. While Na do better first half

NaNa is out of control at this point :tape:. The fame went to her head.

Those who said Shanksur had disappeared after the US Open have clearly been proven wrong :tape:. She has maintained (or bettered) her form for the rest of the year since then. Hopefully she can do tomorrow to KvittyGOAT what she did to Williamsova in the US Open final :bounce:.

That's the point precisely, but there is a real difference between a slam final followed by a slam followed by 8-14, and what Sam's done this year. Na showed in the first half of the year that she has the game of a true top player, but unfortunately has gone to pieces since. Sam struggled a bit in the early half of the year, but continued to work hard on her game and was still in the top 10 going in to the USO. To be fair to Na though, she was unlucky to be drawn against some very tough opponents early in the draws of the tournaments following RG (including a couple of times against Sam), so by the time she got to NY she had zero confidence and match rhythm and she started losing to scrubs as well.

what has Mortensen done to Na's forehand?? It's even worse than Woz's now...

And poor Sabine hasn't been allowed to forget it since, has she? :scared: You'll get another chance to - erm - 'support' her, as she is still going to Li Na's homecoming...;)

I have a bad feeling about Na's 2012. I think she won't defend all her points and will sink like a rock :sad:.

Yes, she's been in free fall for quite a while now and doesn't seem to have packed a parachute. Hope she turns it around though, I like her a lot.
