Margaret Lumia (54yo) - oldest newcomer ever?
 
srsly, how does it comment on WTA doubles? :lol: This lady is 54 years old and was in the SF of 10k last week with... Lenka Tvaroskova. Is it some sort of a record?

partnering Lenka TVAROSKOVA (SVK)
16 W CARRILLO (COL) / GOMEZ (COL) 6-1 6-3
QF W CE (BRA) / SEGNINI (BRA) 6-4 1-6 [10-8]
SF L CASTANO (COL) / NUNEZ-FUENTES (COL) 2-6 1-6

Thatīs because she had a good partner:angel::p

She needs 10 points or 3 tournaments with points to be in rankings though, SF in 10k is not enough

Former world #23 and Wimbledon doubles champion Joanne Russell played $10,000 Williamsburg in October 2009. Less than a month before her 55th birthday.

There have been some over 60 years old playing US ITF-s qualies, I beleive.

There is also Elizabeth Freeman-Young, who only played her first event aged 47. Played WTA Cincinatti qualifying in 2005, while 50 years old.

Good for her! If she's got the money to do a little bit of traveling and play some tournaments, she might as well if she can compete!
