Novak Djokovic regained the No. 1 ranking with his victory over Roger Federer, but was his performance throughout Wimbledon worthy of an A grade? Should Petra Kvitova get a higher grade based on her dominant performance in the women's finals? And how should the disappointing showings of Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Rafael Nadal be rated?

We graded nine women and eight men on their 2014 Wimbledon performances. How far they advanced in the tournament was the primary factor in the grading, but we also considered the quality of opposition they faced and how they fared relative to expectations.

The most prominent men's and women's players received grades, as did all four semifinalists in both singles categories. The lone exception was Nick Kyrgios, who only advanced to the quarterfinals but deserved to be included after acquiring a degree of star status for his two big upsets.

The players are presented in inverse order of the grade they received, with the highest grade awarded to the last player listed.
