Na Li :bigclap:

Hopefully Zi Yan and Yan Ze Xie can get back up there, then they will be even more represented in the top 200 :)

I think Na Li will have a really good 2005 season. Expect to see her in the Top20 soon

Na Li had a real good season, but will she be able to back it up in 2005? I don't know if she can, she seems to have a problem being able to play at the top level week in and week out. She needs to start the new season on a high, e.g: a 1/4 final result.

I fail to see where you get that idea :rolleyes:. The two WTA tournaments she has played this year have been at Beijing Tier II, where she beat Serra-Zanetti, Ting Li and Marta Domachowska to qualify (all in straight sets) and then beat Nicole Pratt in the main draw (straight sets again) before pushing Kuznetsova, the USO champion, to a final set tiebreaker in a match where she had match points. The following week in Guangzhou she qualified and won the tournament, only once dropping a set (Jankovic).

IMO the only bad losses she has had all year was against Linetskaya and Yan. Pretty consistent if you ask me, and we haven't seen enough of her in WTA matches to judge wholly.

Uh folks as of Dec 6th, Jie Zheng is ranked 76 and Na Li 79. Which means Zhengn is still China's top player.

Just for your info......

I think you guys are probably hyping her up a bit much.

Bigtime. But hey China has three women ranked in the top 100 in 2004 and that is pretty a first i think in that country's tennis history.

So hell why not?

According to Jakeev all non-Americans who get attention or credit are 'overhyped', even if they are Slam winners :tape:
