The Chinese tennis sensation has been entered for both the singles and doubles in London, and apparently no one has contacted her about playing doubles.

This is all too familiar. I was put in the same situation  leading up to the 2011 SEA Games. I made the politically correct decision and worked towards getting the best results in both. But I was later blamed by Singapore Rowing for my poor performance in the single, which was apparently why I “did not meet the mark” to be selected to race at the Asian Olympic Qualification. But instead my partner in that doubles was selected to race the Qualifiers. There wasn’t any selection regatta and/or row-off done between us. You go figure that out.

I really hope the final decision with Li Na is based upon getting the best performance 0ut of her. I’ll be rooting for her in the single. She’s a class tennis player and it will show
