The WTA Australian Open Final’s Real Story: Battle of the Supportive Husbands

Posted in Kim Clijsters,Na Li by Ben on January 29, 2011

I contributed to the blog Tennis Served Fresh again.  Here’s an excerpt of my work about Brian Lynch and Jiang Shan, the supportive husbands behind Kim Clijsters and Li Na.

The final of this year’s Australian Open women’s event signifies more than a battle pitting Belgium’s three-time US Open champ Kim Clijsters against Chinese tennis’ greatest hope, Li Na. It’s also the story of two husbands: retired basketball player Brian Lynch and Jiang Shan, a former tennis player-turned-coach.
