Chinese tennis player Li Na has vowed that she will come back to the All England Club in 20 days’ time, wearing the red of China and will be aiming for the top prize to silence all those critics who have blasted her performances over the last few months.
All of China will be looking at Li to lead the charge for China in the women’s tennis arena and after being knocked out of Wimbledon unceremoniously in the second round just a few days back, she will have that extra incentive to go for the Gold Medal at the London Olympic Games.
The 30 year old became the first Asian player in the history of tennis to win a Grand Slam title when she overcame the odds to win the French Open title at Roland Garros in 2011, but since then, she has failed to reach the quarter finals in any of the five Grand Slam events that she has participated in.

Chinese tennis sensation Li Na has rejected calls for her to hire an international coach is is getting visibly frustrated with questions about who would be best to coach her.
She said in an interview on Monday that she is happy with the team that she has in place and that as of this moment there are no plans to replace her current coach and husband, Jiang Shan.
When Li was asked whether or not she was considering hiring a non-Chinese coach for the 2012 London Olympics which are to be held later this year she replied “I don’t know why the media are so interested in this issue, maybe you are not confident in Jiang and my current team, but up to now, I haven’t had any intention of recruiting a foreign coach. And I hope the media won’t ask about it again.”
Jiang, a Chinese national was formerly a player himself before meeting Li and agreeing to coach her full time. He has had success in the job as well with Li Na making the final of the Australian Open under his direction.
