"Li Na is renowned for her touch and point construction"



Quote:
Radwanska and Li are renowned more for their touch and construction of points rather than relying on the power game that the top three seeds Victoria Azarenka, Sharapova and Serena Williams have utilized ruthlessly in the tournament.

Hilarious. Even more so since they mention Azarenka is having more of a power game than Li.

Hitting balls at the heads of the line judges requires touch

Re: "Li Na is renowned for her touch and point construction"

The German ES commentator said something similar during the Görges match, that Na Li is not the most powerful, but known for her consistency. I guess that´s what watching too much Görges, Lisicki and Barthel can do to you. Na Li suddenly looks consistent and underpowered.

Re: "Li Na is renowned for her touch and point construction"

There is some (little) truth in that statement. Li's success is about point construction, not pure power. "Touch" however is not the first term coming to mind. She is playing 31K tension strings, heaviest next to Ljubicic and still spraying like a sprinkler.

It's amazing that people get paid to make such off-base comments.

Re: "Li Na is renowned for her touch and point construction"

The article uses the wrong words but does have a point in the sense that NaLi is not really a pure first-strike BBB player. She likes to play more like an ATP guy and consistently mix it up with repetitive powerful shots to find an opening (instead of only blasting one wacky winner the fist chance she gets - like JuGs and Kvitova & the rest)

This.

Please remember people that if you are going to criticise then keep it targeted towards the writer before this turns into a generic GM crucifixion.

No, but if she was consistent on that level, she´d have five Slams and 10 Slam finals, not 1 and 1.
