Wimbledon Wow Factor: Kimiko Date

Stick-thin Venus Williams appeared to be wearing one of Serena's tennis outfits. Pic Reuters

Despite Venus' oversized attire, she managed to beat 40-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm (I really only remember Kimiko without her double-barreled surname), but only just, by 6-7, 6-3, 8-6.

Kimiko looks anything but 40 years old. In fact (and please correct me if I am wrong), I seem to recall that a younger Date in her 20s was relatively more chubby compared to her older self.

Here is the final paragraph of the Daily Mail sports report:
Finally, the fashion news: Venus Williams is wearing a lace jumpsuit with visible zips and a skinny gold belt. Kimiko Date-Krumm is wearing... really well.

FURTHER fashion news (from another Daily Mail news report) with some comments and observations. Pics from PA and Getty Images.

It must be said that Serena pulled off looking rather balanced and feminine in this emerald dress, in spite of her bulging muscles

Maria Sharapova looked dog-tired and her black boots (wellies?) are not in tune with her fabulous red dress and beautiful body

The shoes are the only tasteful part of this bizarre outfit from world no 31 Bethanie Mattek-Sands

Caroline Wozniacki is still young and has time to develop her fashion sense (I hope)

Jelana Jankovic is wearing a beautiful outfit but her long face and apparent ungainliness draws attention away from her dress and figure
