NEW YORK, NY, USA - Fast Company magazine, a business magazine that focuses on business, design and technology, and which was picked as the best magazine of 2013 by the American Society Of Magazine Editors, has named Li Na as one of the 100 Most Creative People In Business 2014.

Li is ranked at No.50 on the list and is also the only athlete on the list.

"To young athletes, Chinese tennis sensation Li Na is an inspiration," Jason Feifer writes. "She broke away from her government's restrictive sports machine - which trains athletes and demands most of their earnings - in 2008, to work with better coaches abroad. She has since won two majors, most recently the 2014 Australian Open. But to Li's peers, she's a model of barrier-breaking acumen - the only Nike-sponsored athlete ever permitted to wear patches from other sponsors on her NIke gear."

Li is currently the No.2-ranked player on the WTA Rankings and No.1 on the Road To Singapore leaderboard, by a long way - she leads Agnieszka Radwanska by over 1000 points (3640 to 2597).

The new edition of Fast Company magazine hits newsstands next week - see some images below.
