Well, we’re almost to the end of the winter tennis…
This was an excellent match today at the Australian Open in Melbourne. Li Na is making a big play for the Women’s singles title this year and she met up with a 19 year old Canadian girl. I like Li Na so I couldn’t cheer for our girl. Eugenie Bouchard is excellent and will be a popular player for years to come.
But Li Na has improved greatly. She has a huge following worldwide estimated 120 million viewers watched her at the French Open. She hits the ball so well and seems to know where every shot is going. If her serve was 20 mph faster, she’d be the undisputed champ.
Women’s tennis become very entertaining. See the video below. Here’s a few pics you can see more at the Australian Open Website.
Li Na beat Genie Bouchard 6-2, 6-2. Bouchard is going to be one of the best in a couple years.
