Kimiko - a blast from the past

Each year I am reminded of the fun I had as an ‘official’ (representing Kodak and Apple) photographer at the Australian Open Tennis Championship 21 years ago in 1992.

Once again, delighted to see the evergreen Kimiko Date belting them around the court. She is such an inspiration.

How long has it been since we heard some of the other names that were on the court that year? Wally Masur, Rachel McQuillan, John McEnroe, Gabrielle Sabatini, Jana Novotna, Thomas Muster, and of course the winners, Monica Seles and Jim Courier. I’m prepared to bet most of them would love to be running around, still mixing it up like Kimiko.
