Li Na, who has reached the Australian Open final for the second time, describes what happened to her at an airport in Germany after she won her maiden Grand Slam title at the 2011 French Open.

“I don’t know if it BBC or CNN or something news like 24 hours. I just win title. I just go and everyone saw. Also funny thing is bought economy ticket because just [the timing was] so short. They come and say, ‘We know you just win tournament, so move to business.’ I was, ‘Oh, is not bad.’”
