Yes. Tennis press doesn't care about country. Li Na is from China and is loved for her game and her great personality. So you're premise is a huge Fail.

I do agree with this. Although he is getting better. But his 1 win was Wind Aided - sorry Brits, it's true. His problem now is Djokovic and Nadal play a better brand of his game. Unless he can beef up his attack game to be more like Fed and take the play to them, he will lose more often than not, if not all the time, against Djokovic in SF and F of majors. His 2nd serve sucks too - Fed would have won the SF if he'd exploited it more; Djokovic would have won more easily in the F.
