I did not see her SF and only watched a little bit of the final. I saw a few footwork variations on Li Na's ROS footwork sequence. Most seemed to be variations of her footwork in the video link. I also recall some variations with the similar Berdych footwork. Djoko, whose ROS footwork was a bit diifferent from these 2 exhibited some variations as well.

The Murray ROS footwork (post #20) is similar to what I use and teach. While I do insist that my students perform a properly-timed split-step, I do not insist that they perform the sequence exactly the way I do it.
