Li Na Wins Australian Open In 3rd Trip To Final Seven months after giving retirement serious thought, Li Na made it third time lucky in an Australian Open final with a 7-6 (3), 6-0 win over Dominika Cibulkova to become the oldest women's champion here in the Open era. Li, who turns 32 next month, lost finals to Kim Clijsters in 2011 and to Victoria Azarenka last year. In between, she won the 2011 French Open in one of the many firsts she's established for Chinese tennis. Widely popular at Melbourne Park for her funny post-match interviews and wise cracks about her husband and his snoring, Li didn't disappoint the Rod Laver Crowd in her first victory speech. She first thanked her agent, Max, ''for making me rich,'' her coach Carlos Rodriguez and then her husband, former coach and constant traveling companion, Shan Jiang. She told him he was ''even famous in China.'' ''So thanks for him give up everything just traveling with me to be my hitting partner, fix the drinks, fix the racket. So thanks a lot, you a ...
Li, Cibulkov clash in women’s final China’s Li Na will seek her second major title on Saturday when she faces a first-time Grand Slam finalist, 20th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova, in the Australia Open final. According to SI.com, the path looks paved for the No.4 seed, 31, to finally win the title in Melbourne, after losing the final in 2011 and 2013. She nearly lost in the third round when No. 26 Lucie Safarova sent potential winner a match point “five centimeters” long. But a slew of upsets made her draw much easier; not only did Li’s projected semifinal opponent, No. 1 seed Serena Williams, lose in the fourth round, but other potentially tricky opponents also went down, including No. 6 Petra Kvitova, No. 9 Angelique Kerber, No. 14 Ana Ivanovic and No. 15 Sabine Lisicki. In fact, the 24th-ranked Cibulkova will be Li’s first top-25 opponent this tournament. That’s a far cry from having to play Kim Clijsters in the 2011 final or having to beat Maria Sharapova and then face Victoria Azarenka i .. ...
It’s refreshing to watch tennis greats Ana Ivanovich and Kim Clijsters talk to each other on CNN. No, this has nothing to do with Ana’s poise and symmetry, nor with Kim’s good natured traits as a playful doting mother. This is about accidental elevation of media interview to art form. Gone must be the typical Q & A format under the guidance of professional reporters. Usually, the typical reporters are unable to fathom the innermost recesses of the heart and mind of the interviewee, their questions merely revolving around run-of-the-mill journalistic templates. Hopefully, the mass media should run similar sessions between Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova who of late figured in muckraking, or between genteel Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras, or between Agassi and wife Stefi Graf. This should provide better dimension to media interviews, elevating the art form to new heights, as the subjects precisely know what to talk about, what to ask, and what not to ask.
There's also been a couple of unseeded players win too: Kim Clijsters (2009 US Open) and Serena Williams (2007 Aus Open).

Perhaps the most happening time happening to me : Andy Roddick and Kim Clijsters retire after the same tournament (inexplicably killing me), Serena Williams looking forward to another Big title this year :D, Piggy Chops first song about to release and Barfi coming too :D... A Pancreatic attack, and a hurricane of feelings inside.
Serena Williams - The girl for all seasons. Some were really fortunate this younger of the williams sisters did not play in their era. Some were really unfortunate that she infact played in their era. First it was Martina Hingis and Lindsay Davenport who tried hard to bring down this immovable object with a bit of luck at the early going.That was only for a brief period. Williams, including her elder sister, demolished the two at the later stages. Then came two Belgians- Justin Henin Hardeine and Kim Clijsters- both were magnificent in their own right. they had been ranked no.1 many times but when it came to playing against Serena they were proved nothing. now we see Azarneka and Sharapova both were ranked on top of the WTA rankings.but only when they come rendezvous with Serena they feel they are not good enough. Hats of to Serena. the new Olympic Gold medalist.WTA rankings is ridiculed.
