Li Na aims to make hometown a 'city of tennis'

Former World No.2 and Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Open ambassador Li Na took to neighbourhood tennis courts in Wuhan this week to hit balls with local children and spread the word about tennis in the community ahead of the Wuhan Open, slated to begin on Sept. 22.

"It’s so good to see so many children enjoying tennis in my hometown. Wuhan is building a solid foundation for tennis and everyone is working hard to make this a city of tennis," Li said, via translation. "You have to start with children young to get them excited about tennis so it can become more and more popular.

Two-time Grand Slam champion Li Na took to the courts in her hometown of Wuhan ahead of this month's Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Open to promote the event and tennis in the city.
"I want to welcome tennis fans to the Wuhan Open to enjoy top level sport and a wonderful family atmosphere. It’s one of the most prestigious tournaments on the WTA Tour - a Premier 5 - but it’s also going to be a great tennis party for everyone.”
