MELBOURNE, Australia -- Want to party like a Grand Slam champion? Be prepared for your 9:30 a.m. photo call. A little more than 12 hours after she became the first Asian player to win the Australian Open, China's Li Na was barefoot on the beach in Brighton for her champion's photoshoot with the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup.
