After falling quickly to Serena Williams at Wimbledon, 42-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm says she was wowed by the American’s serve, as well as her return.

“When I tried to return, it’s very difficult to where she hit, T or wide,” she said. “Normally I have good return, but her serve, it’s too good. Of course, when I hit serve, even my fast serve, she hit down the line. It’s very difficult situation. She has so much power, speed. She has everything. I think she’s very special, because when I see her serve, I cannot see the bad things. It’s always consistent and always high percentage of first serves in. It’s so difficult to find out compared to other players. I think she’s very, very special.”
