Date Krumm wins Korea Title at 38

Kimiko Date Krumm of Japan captured the Hansol Korea Open on Sunday at the not-so-tender age of 38, becoming the oldest lady since Billie Jean King to win a title. Date Krumm defeated Anabel Medina Garrigues 6-3, 6-3 to win her eight career title. The Japanese was previously ranked as high as number 4 over a decade ago, but she quit tennis from '96 til '08. Kimiko turns 39 tomorrow. What a birthday present!
