Even Steffi and Martina in their primes would have their hands full with Serena Williams the way the latter is playing right now. So you can only imagine what must be going through the heads of those in the camp of Kimiko Date-Krumm, the 42-year-old Japanese trooper who just became the oldest woman to reach the third round at Wimbledon and will have to contend with Serena next.
