Skip to comments.The Refreshing Li Na

Li Na thanked her agent after winning her second tennis Grand Slam in Australia.
"Max, agent, make me rich, thanks a lot" she said."
Funny that proclaiming that you are rich is cool in China and Russia, but no longer in the good ole USA. Haven't communist countries heard about income inequality? Sharing the wealth? When is the last time one of our sport's stars proclaimed his or her wealth to the world ?
Li Na ranks 85th in the world's highest paid athletes having won over $18 million dollars in her career.
Li Na is anything but a communist, bravely splitting from the Chinese Federation of Tennis which was taking 65% of her earnings, but it is ironic that the cries and cheers of capitalism are coming from the stars of communist countries.
Ironically it seems like the only ones who can flout their wealth here are the likes of Bloomberg, de Blasio who lives in a million dollar home, Al Gore, OweBowMao, and on and on - the very ones decrying the capitalist spirit.
Someone needs to tell the likes of the de Blasio's that their communist "homelands" don't apparently share his concept of wealth distribution and equality. Nor have they ever.
Meanwhile, Li Na knocks the crowds dead with her frank and funny acceptance speeches. Having demoted her husband from coach status she says,
"Now, of course, my husband, you're famous in China. Thanks (to) him with everything, travelling with me as my hitting partner. (He) fixes my drink, fixes my raquet...
"So thanks a lot, you're a nice guy ... Also, you're so lucky".
Li Na, happily and unashamedly, walks away with today's winner purse of 2.65 million trickle down money.

Good for her. She seems like a fun person to be around.
Li Na? Isn’t she from the well-known Alkali family?
Not Guilty...but deduct a few points for the tattoo.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 26% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
She is a refreshing change from the freakazoid thugs known as the Williams sisters.
Be around? You may be right but married to? You'd likely be doing the dishes and vaccuming too.......LOL!......not that that's a bad thing.
Oh, you are funny, very.
Definitely not guilty. The tattoo is a distraction. Why would a beautiful woman want something that draws the eye away from her beauty?
And at least she’s straight.
Maybe she likes it.
Yeah, they've heard it, lived it and fought each other in the streets for the T-shirt. They've had just about all they can enjoy of that Marxist fail.
All you degenerate sexist freepers :) >sarc
Obviously none of you read the articles in Playboy.
What happened to the “It’s Great To Be Rich” and phony communist share the wealth themes ?
