Li Na Captures the Hearts of Fans

Li Na Captures the Hearts of FansAlthough Li Na failed to capture the Australian Open title from Victoria Azarenka, she managed to win the hearts of the fans.

Chinese fans were sad but proud after Li lost again on the Australian Open but continued to play even with a twisted ankle. Li Na had to take two medical time out after twisting her ankle twice and even falling down and knocking her head on the court. Li, known as Golden Flower or Big Sister Na still continues to be an inspiration to China and is seen as a role model because of her determination, great smile and her English language skills a mark of a confident and rising country.

One supporter said she was not upset that Li lost the match she Li was able to achieve a lot and earn the support of the whole world. Although many have wished that she would have won the title, still they are proud of her.

Li had her ankle taped after falling down on the fifth game on the second set, and during a ten minute pause and during the fireworks display from nearby Australia Day celebrations, Li fell once again and hit the back of her head on the court. She was treated immediately by a tournament doctor and rested before she was allowed to resume playing. Although her second fall didn’t affect her playing, Li admitted that it was a serious fall.
