Wow. Less than 24 hours after we begged someone to defeat Maria Sharapova at The French Open, boom! Li Na granted our wish. Thank you Li Na. And now Li Na is in her second straight Grand Slam final; she lost to Kim Clijsters at this year's Australian Open.
(Click here to read why we so badly wanted Sharapova's demise.)
We also wished for someone to smack the obnoxious Sharapova in the back of the head with a tennis ball, and by damn, Li Na almost granted that wish as well. At one point in their match today, Li Na served the ball, not aware that Sharapova had turned her back on the serve once again. Unfortunately, the ball didn't bean Sharapova in the head, but at least the attempt was made. Thank you, Li Na, you are our goddess.
