    Weak stuff from Li. Can't get anything out of her serve. Might as well serve it underhanded. :lol:

    Maria is looking pretty manly these days, I wonder if she sups from the furry cup.

    Li Na has this in the bag, excellent tactics.

    I always had tremendous respect for Nadal even if it seems that I don't.

    li na is exposing sharapova as the brainless basher that she is (although a very good basher that can kick most other players off the court most days).

    If I was Maria, I'd skip a grunt every once in a while to throw off my opponent. Would probably help the ratings too.

    They should keep the loser out on the court to be interviewed so that we can see them trying to hold in their tears...or better yet break out and cry!

    Wow. What a set by Li. I hope that she can keep this up. We all know how Li can go away mentally. This is great stuff. But Maria is a fighter and she won't give up.
