Li Na hints breakup with Danish coach

China’s tennis star Li Na (C) takes part in a pre-game meet-and-greet with her fans from Beijing’s colleges and universities in Beijing, Sept 22, 2011, ahead of the China Open tennis tournament.

The Chinese character on the red banner reads: “Li Na, we love you!” Li released that she had left her Danish coach because she did not like his “mild and gentle” way of coaching. The Dane had coached Li since after Li’s French Open triumph in June.

“We have talked about it seriously and he respected my choice”, Li said. The Chinese top tennis player said she would not look for a new coach in the near future and hinted her husband Jiang Shan, once acting as her coach, would be with her during the coming China Open.
