I can't find it on amazon UK.

IMG - Li has more than 110K followers on Facebook now, do some work please.

Re: Tough at the Top : Chinese Champion Li Na on Life in and Out of Tennis

Who among the top 10 tennis players do you most enjoy playing against?

[Petra] Kvitova, because we are very good friends. We can talk a lot about not only tennis, but…about women's lives. You fight a lot on the court, but off the court, we're friends. Even during a match I can get so angry at her coach, but after, we have fun.

Kvitova is hitting on husbands now. Madame Li, hold your D.

I remember Na said something like "I really like Kvitova a lot, but I am not a le.....".

Re: Tough at the Top : Chinese Champion Li Na on Life in and Out of Tennis

To the western world, Li Na isn't really a "bad girl" because in the west, the culture is mostly very open and encourages extroversion. However, in China, the culture in general, can be reserved and quite conservative. To a traditional Chinese person, Li would be considered a "bad girl" for her openness, her straight-talking and her fighter attitude. She's not demure, doesn't bow down to her husband and is outspoken in the way she shoots from the hip.

I think Li Na is great. She's fun, sassy, brash, bold, a pioneer in Chinese tennis. Most of all, her heart is the biggest and best thing about her.

Yes her personality and willingness to put herself first ahead of any system is very unusual for a Chinese and a Chinese woman at that. It's what makes her special.
