Li Avoids Taking Political Questions

At the age of 30, Li Na appreciates she is now in the veteran stage of her tennis so the former French Open champion is this week in Tokyo and turning a blind eye to a worsening diplomatic situation between China and Japan, admitting: “There's not much time left so I have to work even harder.”

At press conferences over the weekend Li adamantly refused to answer any questions on her participation in the $2,168,400 Premier event on the WTA calendar, in which she reached the semi-finals in 2009.
