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?

    Kim Clijsters turned her ankle badly in the first set but did not want to retire because it may well be her last Australian Open.  She is planning on retiring at the end of the year. 

    It is really hard to play a person who is injured, but when you throw away four match points you can expect to be grilled by the media, but not skewered.

    Amazingly video over Li Na’s post match interview where she is showing so rude and almost racist attitude towards the reporters who are just asking her a questions IS GONE from the Australian Open site, YouTube and the entire Internet after only few hours !!!!  It is amazing to realize who is the new boss of the world- CHINA RULES THE WORLD with other puppies around the table… 
    P.S> If one had to remove Serena’s, Kvitova or even Nadal’s video clip just because “sister” doesn’t like it- it  would be impossible !
    BS, shame on you and freedom of the press Australian Open!!!
