Li Gives her best

Chinese tennis player, Li Na, has said that she would give her best in the upcoming Wimbledon tournament and would prove her critics wrong. Li Na had won the French open in 2011. She became a super star in China and all over Asia after that. Before Li Na, no Asian tennis player had ever won a Grand Slam Singles title. After that, she got a lot of commercial contracts and started earning a lot. But, unfortunately, after that French Open, she hadn’t been able to produce the same kind of performance. She hadn’t won any other tournament after that.

Li Na has been criticized a lot due to her continuous inconsistent performances after the French open 2011. It has been said that her wealth is distracting her and she is not focusing enough on the tennis. According to Forbes Rich list, Li Na is one of the richest athletes in the world at the moment. Li has the commercial contracts of the top companies in the world Nike, Mercedes and many more. On being asked about that, Li said that her commercial contracts are not responsible for her inconsistent performances. She said that in the grand slams, you have to compete with the world’s best players and it’s not necessary that every time you will win. She said that she is practicing hard and hopefully, she would do better in the Wimbledon.

In the official rankings of World Tennis Association (WTA), Li is at no. 11 right now. Li had been in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon previously. She made it to the quarterfinals two times before i.e. in 2006 and 2010. In 2006, she had been defeated by Kim Klisters while in 2010, Serena Williams had defeated her. But, Li is pretty hopeful that she would go beyond the quarterfinals this time around and hopefully would win the title.
