Tokyo R3: (5) Francesca Schiavone d. Kimiko Date Krumm 6-3, 6-3

Lot of great play in this match, but KDK might have been a little tired. Franny was on, though.

No, I don't know who showed it. The commentary was in English (a Britishy voiced man). He was alone. This stream is replaying the second set now with Japanese commentary. Also, the other day Tokyo Broadcasting Company showed Kimiko's match delayed and shortened, though. They might show it again (you can see that station online).

Expected. Well done Fransexa.

Kimiko This was such an amazing tournament for you though. Coming through in 2 very tough matches. Happy 40th Birthday and best of luck next week.

Fran was very kind to Kimiko at the net, wishing her a happy birthday. It was a good match.

Kimiko's tournament is a success no matter what, but nice to see Franny showing that these days she's a top player (unlike people like Maria, Dinara etc...who are still considered as top players for some mysterious reasons)

This is what separates the slam contenders from the scrubs - beating KDK.

Fran showed she can play at a top 10 level in this match, sad that it was against Kimiko
But well done, nonetheless

Lovely to hear, what a tournament from Kimiko just brilliant hope she isn't considering quitting after this year - she's really found some great tennis.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Francesa speaking about Kimiko after the match:

"I said to her at the end it was an honor to play her. I've followed her career and she's not just a great tennis player, she's a great person," Schiavone said. "To come back and show the people anything is possible is really inspiring. And today we were playing on the senior tour - we were 70 together!"

Aww - that's just lovely

Fran
Kimiko great tournament - keep it up
