Présentation de l'éditeur
In 2008, Li Na left China's national sports system under an experimental programme for tennis players that enabled them to 'fly solo', which, in three short years, led to her career-defining win at the French Open. Li Na: My Life is the remarkable story of her journey from young tennis talent to the first Asian singles player to win a Grand Slam. Li Na explores her experiences of personal tragedy at an early age, growing up within the country's rigid sports system, and the challenges of being true to yourself wiht a billion people's expectations weighing down on you.
