Re: Date reached another final

I think she's just amazing. If she still had her youth and legs she could give many of today's top ten a run for their money IMO.

She will always reamin in my mind as the first Asian female to make a serious mark in tennis. Kazuko Sawamatsu won in doubles at Wimbledon in 1975 and was arguably in the world top ten that year, but Kimiko had staying power.

A true pioneer, and humble as well.
