You must be a kid?

Kimiko beat Graf and always gave her a run for her money. Even on Grass...

She is no pusher. But she is an "old school" baseliner...

Her strokes are the way they are, because she hits flat and precise. The way it used to be until the early 90's when the game completely changed...
