Be it the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, the Emmy Awards or the Grammy Awards, or just about any other show with something to win, the winner usually delivers a winner’s speech, sometimes also called award speech. All these winners are employed in an area somewhat related to the written, spoken, acted, or sung word. And yet it is rare to really encounter a great speech.
In the light of this sad reflection on seemingly poor oration skills by so many of those who seemingly should know better it is refreshing to take a look at Li Na’s winner’s speech after she won the 2014 Australian Open in Melbourne. Sit back, enjoy, and share a laugh with the tennis professional from China.
