I'd say, even if she does nothing else, she'd be in as of today.

I was going to start the same thread if Li won. 2 Slams and 1 Slam runner-up would have at least raised the question of HOF membership, but the rest of her resume is relatively thin. She has some intangibles - first Asian woman to win a singles Slam, for example, but I still think it would be a tough sell for HOF membership, even if she had those 2 Slams. But, you never know with the HOF.
she won several mixed doubles slams w/mirnyi as well
