Player Report Cards

Based on a 10 point scale


Serena (C-) (74)
Won Australia and Miami but was lack-luster for the rest of the year; lost to one person 3x in a row, but did get back in top ten all the way from 140 or something

Venus (C+) (78)
Won Wimbledon and won three titles and got back in the top ten- struggled at the beggining of the year though- struggling now again

Justine (A) (95)
5 points deducted becasue she lost to Bartoli

Jankovic (B+) (89)
Played up to her ability; lost a lot of matches to opponents below her

Maria (D) (66)
Got spanked on several occasions- lost to Radwanska- did make it to the Australian Open final

Kuznetsova (B) (86)
Made Us Open Final

Ivanovic (A-) (91)
Best results this year- FO final, which she failed to make competitive

Chakvedatze (B+)

Vaidisova (B)

Mauresmo (D+)

Re: Player Report Cards

A+ - Justine Henin
A - Serena Williams, Venus Williams
B - Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic, Svetlana Kuznetsova
B- - Anna Chakvetadze, Daniela Hantuchova

Those have been the best performers to me this year.

Re: Player Report Cards

Davenport (A) (95) - Comeback mom wins a tournament, beats Jankovic and Hantuchova, then reaches QF beating Dementieva in Shanghai

Hingis (D) (64) - Reaches QF in Australia, then wins Tokyo tier I, but it all went downhill from there

Well I was only hard on them because they are very bright and did not apply themselves enough.

Re: Player Report Cards

Those rankings are a bit harsh.
JJ deserves an A+ no doubt, and Serena deserves at least a B.

Re: Player Report Cards

Henin A+
Ivanovic A
Jankovic A
Kuznetsova B+
Chakvetadze B

Serena B
Venus B-
Sharapova C+
Hingis D-

Mauresmo (INC) was injured and ailing most of the year

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
