Li Na’s Post-Match Interview Was More Like A Comedy Act (Video)

by: JamieD On  Thursday, January 27, 2011

China’s own Li Na is not only a great tennis player, but it appears as though she has quite the sense of humor as well.  Following what may very well be a career-defining semi-final victory over top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki at the Australian Open, Li fielded several questions on the court for the fans, and some of her answers were nothing short of hysterical.

Whether she was speaking about her lack of sleep due to a snoring husband, he confusion over their wedding anniversary, or her mother’s refusal to watch her play, Li appeared to have won the crowd over with her quick wit and charming humor.

With the win, the 28-year-old became the first Chinese born female tennis player to enter a Grand Slam finals.  Should she defeat Kim Clijsters during Saturday’s final, it could be the start of something big for tennis in China.  Yao Ming has already shown us how the success of a Chinese athlete in their sport is enough to ignite a nationwide frenzy over it.  So can Li Na do for tennis what Yao has already done for basketball?

As for Li’s greatest moment of the post-match interview, that came when she was asked what got her through the third set.  Her answer?  “Prize Money.”
