    I really think Li Na will finally take the Australian Open title. She was so close in both 2011 and 2013 but this time she is due. She knows she can beat Serena, she took her 3 sets in the YEC final and this will give her some confidence. She just has to stay strong mentally and not fold under pressure like she did in this years Australian Open final vs Azarenka and the last set and half of this years YEC final vs Serena. That is the only thing she needs to fix if she plays well and she can win. The courts are perfect for her game so it would be a huge shame if she retires with no title there. She will get it this January I think.

    I hope so. She deserves one. I hope she can win Wimbledon too.

    She just needs to get her head straight in finals, and she could be a dominant no. 1.

    I don't see a dominant no. 1 but she could win a few more slams for sure. It would be a shame if she doesn't atleast get the Australian.

    I think Carlos has helped her be a more complete player, and she is easily one of the hardest hitters and best groundstrokers on tour. It doesn't matter though when her brain goes to mush under pressure. That is what she needs to fix. I hope she fixes it in the off season.

    That "just" and "the only thing" is apparently unreachable for her.

    I would not be surprised Li Na is going to enjoy all the money she earned and retire soon.

    :grin:

    she is still making loads of money on commercials and other stuff in china so I guess she will at least be around for like 2 more years if she can stay healthy.
