I've NEVER seen Li Na that mentally tough

Even when she won the French, I don't remember this mental fortitude.

Because of Carlos. He almost forced Na to retire from her Tennis career because he was too strict on Na during the Winter Training.

Re: I've NEVER seen Li Na that mentally tough

she's playing more sensibly, thats for sure, I really hope she continues this and doesn't go into brain fart mode in the final, a player of her calibre deserves more than one slam

No, Carlos said Na is here to beat two of top 3 players in 2013.

She's absorbed Henin's spirit from Carlos

Mainly she's calm and confident, or else she could still be a mess.

Yes, Carlos said Na and JuJu have something in common. And he's glad that he has a hardworking student.

Re: I've NEVER seen Li Na that mentally tough

She has clearly been through the mill on the training court and gym this winter and when you get stronger than you've ever been physically something jut clicks and you believe in yourself way more. I think that's a bit part of it and she seems to be having fun - even seen her smile on court this tournament!

Neither. Was such a focused performance. She had a gazillion chances to choke and she didn't. So pleasantly surprised!
