I think so too. The kind of shots she hits require so much technique and finesse that to pull off some of the audacious shots she does when at her best she needs to be really in the groove and full of confidence. And that only comes with matches. At least she did get a few matches in these last few days and I don't think she is that far away. Hopefully by the start of next year she will be at her crafty best.

"My stomach felt terrible this morning. I was in a lot of pain and feeling very uncomfortable," Li said. "After my warm-up I was feeling even worse. I tried everything I could to play but unfortunately I was in too much pain. I want to apologize to all of my fans here in Tokyo. I always want to try my best for them here. I'm really hoping to come back next year."

MJMS has a lot of things, but having good technique is not one of them.

Should have been a much more straight forward win, but I'll take it! Good to rebound after that horrible loss to Safina last week. Good luck against Flavia! :kiss:

To hit the kinds of finesse shots she hits requires perfect timing which doesn't happen without matches.
