Time for a Li Na sighting in Wuhan


When the city of Wuhan, China began hosting its big Premier 5 tournament in Sept. 2014, Wuhan native Li Na – the driving force in Chinese tennis – up and retired just a few days before the first edition.

But that doesn’t mean Li isn’t involved in promoting it.


The 35-year-old was out with the local kids this week.

“Wuhan is building a solid foundation for tennis and everyone is working hard to make this a ‘city of tennis’. You have to start with children young to get them excited about tennis,” she said.
