Does Li Na Have A Chance Against Sharapova if they meet in semifinals

Okay, Li Na beat Agnieszka Radwanska but she has a losing record against Sharapova 7-4. Sharapova has destroyed all her opponents so far. Also, remember Li Na choked the Italian open final against Sharapova despite having leads in the match. At the WTA championships Sharapova destroyed Li Na in straight sets. Does Li Na have a chance against Maria or is it going to lose as usual?

Re: Does Li Na Have A Chance Against Sharapova if they meet in semifinals

She's the most dangerous player Martha could face after Serena and Vika.

Hope it's not a total shit fest like the last time they played.

H2H is 8-4 but I still believe she has her chances, tbh I was more scared of Radwanska since she beat Maria in the last year while Na got bagelled twice.

Re: Does Li Na Have A Chance Against Sharapova if they meet in semifinals

Maria and Na have tight matches, usually shit fests. So if Na plays well it could be a good match.

Re: Does Li Na Have A Chance Against Sharapova if they meet in semifinals

Sharapova and Li didn't play at the championships...

Meh, Li can challenge Maria and still lose. Slight chance. Probably not that much of a chance really. I'd say 90% Maria, 10% Li being generous.

Yup. She definitely has more of a chance against Maria in her form this tournament than Radwanska does.

I'd say odds would be 65-35 in favour of Maria or something.

Re: Does Li Na Have A Chance Against Sharapova if they meet in semifinals

they both have shitty/inconsistent serves, so yeah why not

li na needs to cut the errors though, because so far maria has been ruthless on everything (apart from the serve of course)

either way tennis wins with this match, because they're both very positive attack-minded players which is what everyone comes to watch sport for

No. Maria owns her mentally.

Re: Does Li Na Have A Chance Against Sharapova if they meet in semifinals

Of course she has a shot- and a good one at that. That's the kind of match that would be good to bet on if u had the extra money. The odds will be stacked heavily for Masha, but in actuality I would say she's only slightly favored to win. With that said, Li Na would have to keep her errors down and really have a good day.

If Li plays the match of her life, sure. If they both play their normal 'best', Sharapova easily.

Of course Li has a chance, but Maria is playing so well at the moment her power is just incredible.

Should be a Serena v Masha final.

Re: Does Li Na Have A Chance Against Sharapova if they meet in semifinals

Actually so far Pova's opponents are so weak.
Even with Venus, her form is totally far behind with her peak form.

Hopefully Na has a tight match with Pova but the first thing is to improve the serve.
