The No 5 in women’s tennis, Li Na, gave an exclusive interview to China Daily before her charity match with the men’s world No 1 Novak Djokovic in Beijing on Sept 27, 2013.

Following is part of the interview.


Have you made any special preparations for the charity match with Novak?

How to defeat Novak? I haven't figured out a plan. As a show match, I hope it will be enjoyable for the spectators.

How do you value the change in your tactics and playing? How do you score these changes out of 10?

30 – 10 for my performance; 10 for Carlos Rodriguez and my team and 10 because of my insistence for change even facing a lot of doubt.

What inspiration do you hope to give young tennis lovers?

I think everyone should establish her or his own goal. Especially, young children, they should know what do they really want to do and what they are capable to do.

What kind impression do you want to leave after you retire?

I hope when I quit the tennis court, I will be completely forgotten by people. The only impression I want to leave is that of Li Na the tennis player.

This year is the 40th anniversary of the Women's Tennis Association. You are representing China, how do you feel?

I greatly appreciate the WTA's 40-year contribution to women's tennis. Over the past 40 years, women's tennis has become a globally known sport, thanks to the efforts of the WTA.
