Speaking to the media ahead of the WTA Mutua Madrid Open which beings today, Li Na commented, "I have been feeling pretty good from beginning of the year.  He didn’t come with me in Stuttgart, so when I was here, so many people asked me; are you still working with Carlos? And I said, Of course. I was so happy he could come onto my team to coach me.

“I think for me he’s not only the tennis coach. I think after I was working with him I feel much stronger in my mind and also much stronger on the court. I trust him a lot. He was not in Stuttgart, but we have contact by email, text message, so he knew exactly what I did on the court.  After Stuttgart we had a lot email contacts to prepare what we should do here."
