At 39 years old, Kimiko Date Krumm, became the second-oldest woman of the Open Era to win a match at Roland Garros after beating ninth seed Dinara Safina in the first round. Quick tidbits about her life.

Born Sept. 28, 1970 in Kyoto (Japan)

Married to German race car driver Michael Krumm

She is naturally left-handed but plays right-handed to adhere to Japanese custom

Announces her retirement in 1996

Became the second oldest player in the Open era to win a Tour singles title when she won the 2009 title in Seoul.

Beat Russian Safina 3-6 6-4 7-5 in the first round of the French Open in her first Roland Garros appearance since she reached the fourth round in 1996″

Dude, fuck this, where’s Andre Agassi? I’m happy for her, I’m sure doesn’t need money, I think she was just bored and really loves tennis. After I finish all my schooling, I hope to take some tennis lessons and go pro. After seeing Krumm, it looks like time is on my side.
