Not buying the whole schedule thing. What is this, her first year on tour? She knows exactly what she's doing. If at any point during her lead up to the AO she felt she wasn't going to be fresh to play 7 consecutive matches then she should have pulled out.
She's a more than accomplished, experienced player...it would just be ridiculous for it to come down to poor scheduling
Li played much better today than in Sydney. Aga said that herself. There in lies the difference between a non-slam event vs. a slam. Aga probably played below par by her standards today - all players are bound to have one of 'those days' at some point.
