A bold move four years ago eventually saw a Grand Slam title realized, so it's now time to push even harder.

Aiming to produce more high-ranking players, like 2011 French Open champion Li Na, China's tennis governing body has vowed to expand its professional reforms to get more players involved on a large scale over the next four years.

"We've done a good job over the past four years, but we still lag behind the world's best in terms of professionalism," Sun Jinfang, chief of the Chinese Tennis Association, said at the recent national tennis development summit in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu province.
