If Chris Evert wrote the article, then it's true, because she won 18 Slams.

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

You know what this means... bring on the Hingis-Li Na comparisons . After all, Na has won a Slam, and not coincidentally, the only one Martina never won (and most coveted)

I don't know why everyone is laughing. You're all complaining for the equal pay thing but laugh when you realize news people have to make stuff up to make WTA sound good.

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

To the defenders of the nonsense, to characterize Li as other than a power player is inane. Azarenka relies far more on consistency, touch and point construction than Li.

As for those citing that she won the FO, so did the two other power players mentioned in the quote. Playing a power game doesn't make one a "brainless ball basher" Those types of players don't make it to the top.

You could say that about numerous players barring Li. There has been plenty of women with plenty of potential that have only achieved fractions of what they should have. Such is tennis.

Such is there no need for this thread.

No need for the shit stirring.

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

Na is not a ballbasher, she uses the width of the court with a mixture of topspin and flat shots unlike any player, sort of like Serena. But touch is not even the top 100 words you would use to describe her game though

Actually, Sharapova made it to the top with pure good old brainless ball bashing.

But to the point: You can qualify Li as a power player, because she used to play flat, heavy shots throughout. However, those were not actually heavy compared to the real big-hitters. Li very rarely hits over 130kph groundstrokes, far from the 140kph or 150kph of Petrova, Cirstea, Kvitova, Sharapova, Lisicki, ...

Li cannot, compared to, say, Kvitova, hit through an opponent out of the blue. Li, therefore, needs point construction. Of course, Li's type of point construction is rather simple compared to grinders like Azarenka or crafters. And, of course, "touch" is just nonsense.

That's a decent point. But if you're going to praise Li you should be talking about how she's a pioneer for Chinese tennis, that she worked her butt off to get to the top tier all the way from years of ITF, that she has laser-like strokes on the FH and BH, and that she has some of the best, most aggressive footwork on tour.

I don't think anyone who watches Li thinks she needs kudos for her soft hands, and perhaps even point construction.
