Kimiko Date Krumm lost to Jarmila Groth at French Open 2010

Calf injury has forced Japanese veteran, Kimiko Date Krumm, to be eliminated from the second round of the ongoing French Open 2010. She was beaten by Jarmila Groth of Australia 6-0, 6-3.

Kimiko Date Krumm challenged doctor’s orders and went to play her second round game. It is pathetic that she could not advance further as she was hampered by a calf injury that he sustained in her first game against Dinara Safina. She was extraordinary against the former world number one and last year’s runner up Dinara Safina, whom she defeated in the first round of this tournament.

"Yesterday I took an MRI. I went to the clinic, and the doctor said 'of course don't play. It's too risky'.

"The results were not good, but I had the same problem before so I feel if I'm standing in the middle I don't feel the pain.

The thirty-nine-year-old player, Kimiko Date Krumm, became the oldest woman of this tournament who reached the second round in the Open era since Britain's Virginia Wade in 1985. She made her first appearance at Roland Garros since 1996 after a 12-year absence.

Date Krumm could not repeat her success against the 23-year-old Jarmila Groth and received her first loss.

Date Krumm began her career in 1989 and became giant killer after defeating many top ranked players including Steffi Graf. She rose to international prominence in the early 90s. In 1995, she reached number four in the world ranking.

It is expected that she will be recovered soon and make her return to the tennis court as soon as possible.
