Re: Oldest Player to play an WTA Tournament( Including Qualies)

Elizabeth was originally a competitive figure skater. She didn't pick up tennis until she was in her 20s. She was the #1 ranked player in the New England Seniors division, so she hired a coach and decided to play on the pro tour. For a woman in her late 40s, she's done pretty well.

Ritchey-Thomas says her inspiration is Elizabeth Freeman-Young, who lost her first-round qualifying match 6-0, 6-1 yesterday to Varvera Lepchenko. Freeman-Young, a psychiatrist from Newton, Mass., is playing the pro tennis circuit at the age of 48.
Just found this, she has had no connection to tennis before I guess *eek*

Re: Oldest Player to play an WTA Tournament( Including Qualies)

^lol how do you miss her? She only played like 20 matches her whole career.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Oldest Player to play an WTA Tournament( Including Qualies)

Frankly I think if a player has a dream to do something than go for it. I don't really think Freeman or even the more famous Nancy Caro and DeWonder Davis competed for the money.

Now getting all these women against each other in some sort of exhibition would be interesting

Re: Oldest Player to play an WTA Tournament( Including Qualies)

I can think women can do anything they put their mind to anything as long as they have an ugly husband. If you can sleep with an ugly husband on a daily basis, tennis and life ain't so tough. Yes, I mean that and believe that. That is why you play and do other stuff to avoid that husband so well.

Live so that when you are gone, it would have mattered---- Betty Feezor

Last year she only played 3 tournaments, and won 1 match... If you find somebody Older, write here please though I doubt this will happen.
That's quite old.
