Na Li vs Outright Winner by Serialtips
Tennis WTA, Australian Open
With surprising losses of Azarenka and Halep last night, I am pretty convinced that Na Li is going to win the Australian Open.
Since Carlos Rodriguez (ex-coach of Justine Hénin) is her coach, Na Li has completely changed and improved her skills, indeed she is playing an offensive tennis very pleasant and especially very efficient.
She was so closed to win the Masters Championship two months ago, taking the first set during the final against Serena Williams.
She is confirming on this beginning of season by winning comfortably the tournament of Shenzhen and especially by crushing her opponents in this Australian Open, only a great Safarova worried her.
Tomorrow, she is going to play her semi-final against young canadian player Bouchard who showed us her whole talent so far. Even so, Bouchard is still one level under Na Li to my mind, and I think that she will have some difficulties during exchanges against the chinese player's offensive tennis. Moreover, Bouchard's serve is weak, this is her main weakness and no doubt that Li will assault her on return.
Then, if she Li reaches the final, she will face Cibulkova or Radwanska.
Few chances to see Cibulkova on final to my mind, but if it's the case, I don't think that she has the weapons to worry Na Li, the head-to-head shows it well, Na Li is leading 4-0 against the slovakian player.
The more probable case will be to see Radwanska on final, then the match will be very interesting, it will be kind of copy of the match Azarenka-Radwanska last night because Azarenka and Li have same offensive tennis but I think that Li won't commit the same mistakes than Azarenka, she is more confident and she seems to have more lucidity, so I think that she won't frustrate against the "running" tennis of Radwanska.
Moreover Radwanska could feel some pressure because she never won a Grand Slam on the contrary of Na Li.
So I think that Na Li will win the Australian Open.
