W1R: Kimiko Date Krumm def Katie O'Brien 6-0 7-5



First into 2nd round!

Kimiko was getting tight towards the end though.
Tons of breaks in the second set.

Most likely Venus next.

Kimiko first woman into R2!!! COME ON KIMIKO!! First set was 17 minutes.

Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Wimbledon R1: 40 year old Date-Krumm def [BYE] O'Brien 6-0 7-5 in barely over an h

Lawd. O'Brien is so abysmal. She should just retire and become a florist or something. The AELTC needs to STOP handing out the wildcards like free lunch to scrubs like O'Brien because it is such a horrific display for British tennis. I say the media needs to come down on the useless and irrelevant Brits on a grander scale this year

Congrats, very well done.
She will be a tough opponent for five-time champion.

Kimiko

Never makes it easy for herself but she got the job done in the end.

Lost first round here last year, so this is good for her.

Didn´t see this thunderous first set (17 minutes with break) but the second was competetive, however O´Brien wasted every single chance she had (twice 30-0 on serve I believe)...at least some sign of fight from 3-5 and MP.

Well at least the second set was competitive after the pitiful 1st set.
