:hearts: What a week had been for former single world No. 4, Kimiko Date.
She reached single final before losing to Thai Tiger lady, Tamarine Tanasugarn in 3 tight sets battle and eventually captured double title with Japanese youngster K. Nara to defeat third seed M.South (GBR) and N.Tyssen (NED) also in 3 tight sets battle!
I believed its a bit too much physically for 37 yo woman.... playing 12 matches in less than 10 days.. :eek:
11-1 record comeback!
Good luck for the rest of your comeback, Kimiko! :wavey:

Saw Nara play at wimbledon last year with Doi. They're very good!

Well done Kimiko!! What an amazing comeback. 1 singles final and a doubles title at ITF level is something to be proud of after 12 years!
