GIFU, JAPAN: Kimiko Date-Krumm showed no signs of slowing down as she claimed an eighth ITF Pro Circuit singles title, her second of the year, with victory in the final at $50,000 Gifu over Noppawan Lertcheewakarn 61 57 63.

Her three set win over the eighth seed from Thailand followed an impressive week of tennis from the top seed and the second set in the final was the only set she dropped all week.

At 41-years-old, Date-Krumm is the only player aged 40+ to ever win a singles title on the ITF Pro Circuit and remains a popular player on the Circuit.
