Name: Li Na
Hails from: Wuhan, Hubei, China
Occupation: Pro Tennis Player
Known for: Coached by her husband, inspired by her late father, and supported by a mother too nervous to watch her matches, Li is a tennis player whose game is focused on family. And the blood, sweat and tears have paid off–Li is currently 10-for-10 in her matches this year.
Entering the Australian Open as 9th seed, Li has made an impressive show so far–besting Sofia Arvidsson (Sweden), Evgeniya Rodina (Russia), Barbora Zahlavova Strycova (Czech Rep.), Victoria Azarenka (Belarus) and Andrea Petkovic (Germany). She will now face top-seeded Caroline Wozniaki (Denmark) in her second-ever Australian Open semi-finals, keeping hopes high that she will bring home the first-ever Grand Slam singles tennis title to Asia.
That should make her family proud.
Occupation: Student and NCAA Golfer
Hails from: Phoenix, Arizona
Why She’s a Babe: When somebody says, “She looks an awful lot like her uncle Tiger Woods,” images of the toothy pro’s head on a frumpy female body jump quickly to mind. But while Cheyenne, a freshman at Wake Forest University, may have her relative’s smile and a bit of his swing, she’s far, far, from frumpy. She’s gorge! And when it comes to golfing, she’s also good.
Yes, we’re biased because she’s part Chinese (granddad Earl was Black, Chinese, and Native-American), but surely you agree.
