Both Li Na and Schiavone are good players. Lina is in better form this year, that is why she is the winner of the French open 2011

I wonder how much of the prize money ends up in the actual winners pocket-after you deduct tax, coaches fees, nutritionists and the whole entourage the top players travel with these days. Not that they're complaining I'm sure!!!
