We hear so often of parents becoming too much of a burden in pro tennis, both on the men’s and women’s tour. But that’s clearly not the case for Li Na. The two-time Grand Slam champion who won in three sets yesterday in Doha, revealed after the match that her mother takes no interest in her tennis, not even when she played the Beijing Olympics.

“Never,” Na said when asked if her mom ever watched her play. “Even I play Olympics in Beijing, she never come to watch. So I always invited her so many times. She say, I’m not interesting. I say, Okay. Stay home. Do whatever you want. Just enjoy the life.

“I think I never saw she do some exercise, you know, so I’m pretty sure she’s not good sports.”

The 31-year-old was the top seed in Doha before losing today to Petra Cetkovsa.

“Well, it’s difficult to describe at the moment, because I’ve just sat down after coming from the court, and it’s an amazing victory,” Cetkovska said. “But I’m very, very happy with the performance today. Even though I was 3-1 down in the third set, I managed to make it and get through. So I’m really, really happy, of course. It’s an amazing win for me.”
