American Venus Williams makes a return to Japan’s Kimiko Date-Krumm at the US Open
At 34, the seven-times grand slam champion recovered from a set down to see off Date-Krumm and deny the age-defying Japanese a victory. She set the prime example. Date-Krumm turns 44 next month but shows no sign of wanting to call it a day and when she took the opening set, a first win over Williams in their fourth meeting looked possible.
