Cool $50,000 Gifu 08 Final: Kimiko Date/K.Nara def. M.South/N.Tyssen(3) 6-1, 6-7(8), 10-7

What a week had been for former single world No. 4, Kimiko Date.
She reached single final before losing to Thai Tiger lady, Tamarine Tanasugarn in 3 tight sets battle and eventually captured double title with Japanese youngster K. Nara to defeat third seed M.South (GBR) and N.Tyssen (NED) also in 3 tight sets battle!
I believed its a bit too much physically for 37 yo woman.... playing 12 matches in less than 10 days..
11-1 record comeback!
Good luck for the rest of your comeback, Kimiko!

Saw Nara play at wimbledon last year with Doi. They're very good!

Well done Kimiko!! What an amazing comeback. 1 singles final and a doubles title at ITF level is something to be proud of after 12 years!
