A+: Li Na
Took out 4 seeds, including much favoured Agnieszka Radwanska and Maria Sharapova. Despite losing in the final, showed true grit by fighting all the way despite her injury.
A: Victoria Azarenka
Shut the haters up (including me) by winning her 2nd slam. Path to title wasn't tough, but she did it and that's all that matters.
A-: Sloane Stephens
Breakout star of the tournament. Took out Serena and looks to be the future American hope.
B+: Serena Williams
Really should have been her title but injury derailed her. Fought all the way despite a sprained ankle, bruised lips and injured back. If these didn't happen, she's almost a guarantee for the title.
B: Maria Sharapova
Lost the least number of games going into the semi-finals but flopped hard in it.
B-: Svetlana Kuznetsova
Look who's back! Took out Caroline Wozniacki but outlasting her(!) and for once, remained mentally strong.
C+: Ekaterina Makarova
Reached her 2nd consecutive Australian Open quarter-final by beating 2 top 10 players. If she continues her form, will be a good bet to break into top 15.
C: Kimiko Date-Krumm
Oldest player to reach the 3rd round. Proves that age is only a number.
C-: Agnieszka Radwanska
Perfect record for 2013 was useless. Paid the price for playing too many tournaments before the main event.
D: Caroline Wozniacki
No improvement. Lucky to reach the 4th round.
E: Samantha Stosur
Just not a player in Australia. Nervous wreck.
F: Sara Errani
What a flop. The weakest link in the top 10. Maybe she can concentrate on doubles instead.
