Re: A Grand Slam first for China [Tennis]

I'm glad she did because she deserved it. Last year I was watching a duel between the two seating on court number 17 (it was in the 2nd or 3rd round cannot remember) while Schiovone beat Li in straight sets. What we didn't realize then though is that both ladies would become finalists in RG 2011. My wife is still upset that I didn't take close photos and record the video. Who could predict the future then...

I'm so glad she won! She definitely deserved it. Always nice to see a Chinese woman succeeding in some sport other than ping pong.
