    No contenders here. Nice to see that Kimiko made it into Wimbledon at the ripe age of 42!

    Nothing to be ashamed of, as both did very well. And hey, all the top guns in tennis were outed pretty early. Nishikori will definitely be in the world's top ten before long.

    "Williams... despite being 11 years younger than her opponent"

    I bet if Kimiko was 20, 31-year-old Serena would have lost.

    Especially because Serena would be only nine years old. The woman is making records because of her skill at the age she is at. She was 20 once and playing then, but I don't think she did quite as well as she did when she matured later.

    smith... Serena, at 31, is 11 years younger than Kimiko, 42.
    If we could have a 20 year old Kimiko playing a 31 year old Serena, Kimiko would have the same advantage...

    That final set was brutal from Serena. If that had been a boxing match, the ref would have stopped it. Can't see anyone stopping her with Sharapova already out.

    Don't get the fuss about kimiko's Baba Tennis. She should not come to these stages again. Leave the chances for youngsters.

    It'll be interesting to see how well Serena does at age 42 against 31 year-old players.

    Serrano:

    I don't know what you have against Williams but no-one has said anything bad about Date-Krumm's performance. She was expected to be beaten by Williams, and you just can't get over the fact that this is exactly what happened. What Date-Krumm has done these past few years is incredible - but let's face it, at her peak she was never as good as Williams is now at 31. She had never reached a GS final and was never ranked above 4. Can't you just sit back and enjoy the tennis instead of bitching?

    Pukey - Who's bitching, ha ha! You don't think it will be interesting to see 42-year-old Serena playing a 31-year-old?
