Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

Anything can happen in the WTA these days.

Serena and Vika would probably occupy the top 2 spots for the fordable future.
Maria's return date is uncertain, if she does not return before RG, that spot can be up for grab.

Aga, Errani are vying for it, but Li Na can be added to the mix.

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

number 3 anyway, it's difficult to reach for Na.
but I'm very baffled at people saying she's still inconsistent. this has been the most consistent season she's played in the last 3 years. she only messed up in may, and maybe many are forgetting that she didn't play for TWO months after AO final because of her injury.

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

I've actually had a feeling all year that Na will win the Beijing title.... if that happens, would she have a good shot of finishing the year at #3 assuming Radwanska doesn't do anything major the rest of the year and Maria doesn't play again?

I'm not so sure. Beijing is probably one of the hardest titles for her to win, she really doesn't seem to like her home crowd.

She's not solid enough week-in-week-out .

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

This is deceivingly easy to do.It requires Na not to slack off for the rest of the season,but her mind with the close of the US Open seems as usual to have been in prepartion for the 2014 Australian Open.Accually,Maria's (at least) two-month absence does open the door to running her close/out in ranking's terms and its probably only favorable to Aga who is in the running for Seul,Tokyo,Beijing.

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

Aside from the clay season, this has been a remarkably consistent year for Na. These are her results outside of the Big 3 clay tournaments:

Shenzhen title
Sydney SF
AO F
Miami QF
Stuttgart F
Eastbourne QF
Wimbledon QF
Toronto SF
Cincy SF
USO SF

she's been unlucky with injuries but this year has been na's most consistent. she's made QF or better in all of her nonclay tournaments. i honestly would've never expected it.

Tough task. Especially how solid Azarenka and Serena are atm.

My guess is that Radwanska simply plays too much to allow Li to get to 3.

If Sharapova doesn't play for a bit then Radwanska is the best bet to take number 3 before anyone else.

Li doesn't necessarily have too many more seasons left in her.... at least logically I would think that to be the case.

Top 5 is as good as it gets for her.... and with a slam to her name and knowing how she languished in ITF for so long..... her results are pretty impressive overall.

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

She should have a baby and do a Kim Clijsters. And yes she can reach #3

Re: Can Li Na ever reach #3?

Easier to achieve that after RG if she can play a full schedule of 16-18 tournaments next year.

However, I hope she proves me wrong this year. Come on gurl!
