Kimiko Date-Krumm ©Tennis Panorama (January 15, 2013) A look at some the questions and answers from day one of the 2013 Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne. Kimiko Date-Krumm Q.  I think you set a record today. ( At 42, Date-Krumm became the oldest player to win a match at the Australian Open) KIMIKO DATE‑KRUMM:  Of course not.  You know, it’s many times I play the Grand Slam.  But since when I start play again, always I have a tough draw.  Almost every time I play the seeded player.  And many times I almost beat them, and then I lost many times. So this time also, when I saw the draw, I play against a 12‑seeded Petrova.  Well, it’s happen again, so… But this time I don’t get injury.  My body is feeling lots good.  My tennis was not so bad.  So I felt even I lose, but I felt I’m interesting to play today.  So I’m very happy today, yeah. Q.  Many people would like to know your secret to longevity?  Is it ice baths, miso soup? KIMIKO DATE‑KRUMM:  I don’t eat not so
