Li Na: Best yet to come

Afp
Wednesday, February 12, 2014

DOHA - Li Na, the Chinese star who won her second Grand Slam title last month and will earn a world number two ranking this week, believes the best is yet to come.

The 31-year-old has top seed status at this week's Qatar Open, the $US2.4million ($F4.5million) event, which is her first since her Australian Open triumph two weeks ago.

"I don't think this is the best moment of my career — the year is only just beginning. I can't just say I did well in the first one," Li insisted, referring to the Melbourne success.

"It's only February, so I can't say it's the best yet. The future may be better. There are many more months in the year. I am confident I can still do well, so I want to prove what I can do."
