Li Na gives hysterical speech after winning Australian Open (Video)

Li Na Australian OpenLi Na remains perhaps the funniest player on tour. After winning the Australian Open on Saturday for her second career grand slam, the Chinese superstar gave a hilarious acceptance speech.

Li thanked her agent for making her rich, her husband for making her drinks and then she congratulated her husband for being “lucky” for finding her.

Li brought down the house with her speech, leaving the next speaker to admit that was a tough act to follow. It sure as heck was.

Chinese Media Makes Li Na Cry After Loss (Video)

French Open winner Li Na lost her fourth-round match at the Australian Open to Kim Clijsters in three sets Sunday and ended up crying in her postmatch press conference.

Li was up 5-4 in the second set and failed to serve out the match. She also was up 6-2 in the tiebreaker and blew that lead, surrendering six straight points. She then fell behind 5-1 in the third but rallied back to make it 5-4 before losing the match. Li was probably disappointed that she lost relatively early in the tournament, and that she blew several match points.

When pressed about the loss after the match and asked if she cried, Li broke down. She had to leave the conference early because of the questions.

Hey, don’t judge her too harshly. Do you have a country of 1.2 billion people disappointed in you?
