李娜2012法网前将推出自传 - Li Na will publish an autobiography before the 2012 French Open print version
level 2
Li Na has barely won a game in months, but she is still enjoying the fame of her French Open championship. When you are the first Asian player to win a singles Grand Slam title, this is understandable. At present she is working on her autobiography, portraying her tennis career which reached its peak in Paris. The British Penguin publisher is taking advantage of her popularity, owning the book's copyrights and entering the Chinese market in full force.

10月13日,英国(British)的企鹅出版集团(Penguin Publishing Group)自豪的宣布,他们已经取得了中国李娜的自传[1]的中文版权[2]。李娜的自传完成后,企鹅出版集团将负责出版、推广以及销售这本中文自传。这对于企鹅出版集团扩张在中国市场有着深远的影响。

这本自传的书名为《如何闯入西方世界并取得胜利》(How to Go West and Win)。李娜是首个赢得大满贯(Tennis Grand Slam)单打冠军[3]的亚洲(Asian)球员,她将会通过自己的首本自传告诉球迷[4],究竟她是如何在竞争取得胜利[5]。

企鹅出版集团中国区(China branch of Penguin)总裁[6]评论道:"我们很荣幸能和李娜合作,共同分享她的经历。凭借她在中国的名声[7],以及她良好形象,我相信这本书能提供一个让普通人了解中国职业运动员[8]经历的机会。这本书不仅是给球迷的,同时也是提供给那些想要获得成功的人。"李娜本人说道:"我希望我的故事能对任何年纪的读者都产生激励[9]的作用,我同时也非常期待和企鹅出版集团的合作。"

这本书暂定的出版日期将是2012年法网(French Open)前夕,显然出版商[10]将想要赶在李娜法网冠军一周年[11]前推出这本自传。
