Date Krumm returning to Wimbledon

LONDON -- Kimiko Date Krumm of Japan will compete at Wimbledon for the first time in 13 years.

The 38-year-old Date Krumm came out of retirement last year. Tournament organizers said Tuesday that she received a wild card.

Her last appearance at Wimbledon was when she reached the semifinals in 1996.

Date Krumm was once ranked No. 4 in the world. She was forced to quit in the first qualifying round for the French Open last month due to a calf injury.

Wimbledon starts June 22.
