The fact of the matter is that things in womens slams finals rarely go according to plan.
It'd be good for Li to win another slam, people will start seeing her in a different light then and she will escape the tag of the one-slam wonder.
She definitely looked like she was suffering physically in her semi but it was a hot day. Much cooler in Melbourne today and of course the final is at night.
Still hoping for a Li win though even if it is just to wipe the smile off the face of Vika's boyfriend...Sideshow Bob!
