Youth trumps experience as Bencic downs Date-Krumm
Yahoo News - about 3 years
By Simon Cambers MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Youth and potential trumped age and experience at the Australian Open on Monday as 16-year-old Swiss Belinda Bencic took down 43-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm 6-4, 4-6, 6-3. The 27-year age gap was the largest in a grand slam since a 47-year-old Martina Navratilova was beaten by 19-year-old Gisela Dulko at Wimbledon in 2004. "It means a lot to win because I didn't play really at my best, but I was able to fight through," said Bencic, who is coached by Martina Hingis's mother, Melanie Molitor. Hingis, who was watching in the stands on a court packed with Japanese fans, looked concerned when a nervy Bencic trailed 3-0 and 4-2.
