Li Na gets wax figure in China

Li Na helped unveil her new wax figure at Madame Tussauds in her hometown of Wuhan, China, on Thursday.

I'm not sure the facial likeness is there, but the addition of her trademark SpiderTech kinesio tape was right on the money. While that detail wasn't overlooked, one other sponsor-related one was. Aside from the lack of sponsors on her sleeve (Mercedes-Benz and Taikang Life Insurance won't be too happy about that), can you spot the error?

Here, the Babolat folks will give you a hint:

After the jump, check out some other instances of tennis players getting waxed. It doesn't always end well. (Click here for more photos of athletes in wax.)
