I always considered her a poster child for the modern game. Is her extension and drive the one aspect of her stroke you perceive as being traditional?? All the top guys on the ATP tour have the same great extension.
MTM fails again. MTM has as much connection to the modern tennis game as Scientology does to science.
5263 thinks Li Na is spotty player with "traditional" groundstrokes. 5263 how many French Open Champions have you developed with your MTM groundstrokes? Too Funny.
It is all about the future. The 70 year old man who has never heard of topspin and signed up for lessons is going to beat Li Na and then young Filip, once he understands how to pull back on the ball at contact. It may not be possible by the laws of physics as we know it today, but this is about the future.
