LI NAs TIME COVERThe stunning cover of Li Na on her second cover of the famous magazine – wtatennis.com

 

LI GRACES COVER OF TIME MAGAZINE

She’s done it again – WTA star Li Na, who made the cover of TIME’s 2013 TIME 100 issue last year, will be on the cover of the May 26 issue of TIME magazine.

 

Li has been the torch-bearer for women’s tennis in China, and in the Asia-Pacific region in general. She became Asia’s first Grand Slam champion at the 2011 French Open (and has followed it up with another Grand Slam title at the 2014 Australian Open), she became the first Asian player ever to break into the Top 3 on the WTA Rankings (and has since bettered her career-high to No.2) and she is also currently No.1 on the Road To Singapore leaderboard, the year-long journey to the BNP Paribas WTA Championships Singapore presented by SC Global – the WTA finale’s first Asia-Pacific venue.

Li is the second-highest-paid female athlete in the world with over $42 million in endorsement deals.
