Li Na thinking big in retirement

The problem with a pro tennis career is that once a player’s done playing, there’s an awful lot of living left to do.

With the prize money no longer coming in, nearly all pros need to find new ways to generate income. But Li Na is going to be just fine.


The popular Chinese athlete not only already is a mother of two, she plans to take on all sorts of endeavors in her post-tennis life.

Li has a reality TV show in the works as well as a clothing line in cooperation with her longtime sponsor Nike. There’s even a tennis academy in development to give back to the next generation of aspiring Chinese athletes.

Li Land is apparently coming.
