Li’s Husband to Coach Her in the London Olympics
French Open Champion Li Na will not be hiring a foreign coach for her Olympic preparations and will be sticking with her husband coach Jiang Shan. Li has been blasting the media on why they are so interested in her decision on choosing her coach.
Jiang was coaching Li during the Australian Open Finals last year, where she lost in a tough three setter set to Kim Clijsters. Then she was coached by Fed Cup captain Micheal Mortensen and helped her capture the French Open but was later replaced by Jiang after the U.S. Open.
Li’s form dropped a bit after she became Asia first Grand Slam winner, but Li has assured that she will be in her top form during the Olympics. She knows that the people were a little disappointed with her performance this year and after she reached the Australian Open Finals, but she know her game is okay and she was no regrets so far.
Li has planned her training around the London Olympics, after the French Open Li won’t be playing any games until the Wimbledon. Then after that she will return to China to rest for two days then will visit her doctor in Germany. Then she will travel to London a week before the Olympic so she can adjust to the grass courts.
This will be Li’s third and last appearance in the Olympics and she wants to be ready so she won’t have any regrets and be on her top performance.
