Right? Not even 12 months ago she led 6-4 4-0 in a Rome final, and a bit before that lost from MPs up at AO. But sure, she was definitely going to beat Vika a set up, down a break

You have to factor in everything to the game and account for everything. No one knows why Li Na fell, its just a fact, but she fell twice. Subtle things like managing your footwork, keeping your muscles calm are also part of your game. Not saying but tightness on muscles or something else could have resulted in her falling, just a possibility.

You make it sound like Li Na only had injuries, but so did Azarenka, and so did so many other players out there. They feel their bodies not us, so i'm sure they would know.

To say Li Na would have won without the leg injury, is just blind fanboyism. Imho Li played better after she fell over, just my observation. The difference in result was Azarenka finding her game as the game progressed, face it her first set was like a gift to Na.

You are so pathetic and your observation is hilarious.
Ya, all the sets that Azarenka lost were gifts to her opponents.

Not only yours. Vika seemed for a while to lose her focus and her momentum after Li fell. Conchita, while commenting the match in Eurosport, remarked upon it.

Na's new serves were working until 5-2 in the first set. And she was hitting the balls quite well. Vika couldn't do much until Error-Na showed up. Na's serves worked again at 1*-1 in the 3rd set before that fireworks and 2nd injury.

It was her new serves to help her to beat Maria in SF. Her new serves were a bit horrible at times in the final. Vika could attack most of Na's service games in the 2nd and final sets quiet easily because the quality of Na's new serves went down.

Yes. Then it seems Na refocused and picked up her games a bit.

I said what I said remarking upon the comments of a GS winner. Don´t twist my words (or learn to read carefully).

I only mentioned the first set, not because Na did anything spectatcular, but because Azarenka was playing horribly in the first set (more so the first half).

It's hilarious that people seem to believe that Li Na's game plummeted because of the injury, when it doesn't necessarily mean your form is lost. When it was Vika's form that was lost from the start, which she regained, and hence made the difference.

But suit yourself and believe whatever makes you feel better.

Well at least you havn't blamed Na's injury for her loss. Good to hear.
