Fransexa - the oldest player in the Open Era to complete that Grand Slam quarterfinal
Franny keeps breaking WTA records.
After already being the oldest first-time GS champion and taking part in the longest GS match, she is now pronounced the oldest player to complete GS quarterfinal, according to WTATour.com
Schiavone was playing her first Australian Open quarterfinal. Having reached the quarters or better at the other three Grand Slams already, this completed her collection - and at 30 years and seven months, she is the oldest player in the Open Era to complete that Grand Slam quarterfinal collection.
