Tennis: Kimiko Date-Krumm

Kimiko Date-Krumm yesterday suffered a beat-down at the hands of the undefeatable Serena Williams. However, the match made Kimiko the oldest woman to ever reach the third round at Wimbledon. More impressive still is the fact that the she returned to the professional game in 2008, following a 12-year retirement! Kimiko plays a beautiful game to boot, trading off power for finese and versatility, which makes for enjoyable viewing (quite rare in women's tennis, dare I say it!). Very admirable.
