Yes, it's only minor league. But it's still a good story.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009

A true legend, I'd say.

azarenka.
zvonareva.

At 94, Just being on the dirt, instead of in it, is quite an accomplishment..
