"Despite the loss, Li determines to bounce back in the upcoming tournament, The Internazionali BNL D'italia. The Italy tournament – held in Rome, May 11-19, 2013 – will be the last premier event before the French Open where Li triumphed in 2011. Li Na and her coach Carlos Rodriguez – who have been together since last year’s Cincinnati – are in serious business en route to the prime event, The Roland Garros."
Someone said Na asked the Madrid tournament organizers nicely for playing her R1 match on a smaller court after she practiced and found out how high-bouncing the Center Court surface is. But they still put her there and it was a late afternoon match.
