Good on her! For a 40-year-old to beat a 23-year-old - a world class one at that - gives hope for all us 30-somethings...

A win is a win. I'm sure Sharapova was surprised. But I'm sure she also was jet-zoned/lagged out of the synch and all that. Come on. Do you think she really prepped for this event? Just a top along the way. That being said, Date-K sure showed she ain't no crumb. And woe to anyone who takes an opponent lightly. Even a 40-year old opponent. Its a great lesson in the power of believing in one's self. Even Date is surprised with the results, I'm sure. But deserving!

Sharapova said she was impressed with Date Krumm’s ability and fitness after such a long layoff.

Now thats a great sportswoman! As for Date, keep on truckin'!!

Sharapovas serve was terrible,in the final set she was up a break and 40 love up on her serve, for a 4 2 lead but she lost the next 5 points for Date to level at 3 3 and that,s where she lost momentum.. she was probably thinking about a nice hot shower and a massage when she was 40 love up ....On ya date for sticking in...

It's amazing to watch her take the ball so early with little, if any, backswing. Good job.

Outstanding effort. Happy birthday Kimiko. You inspire us all!
