LONDON (AP) — Japanese veteran Kimiko Date Krumm lost in the first round at Wimbledon on Monday, beaten 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 by Ekaterina Makarova of Russia.

The 43-year-old Date Krumm, who reached the semifinals at Wimbledon 18 years ago, was the oldest player entered in the tournament this year. She made her Wimbledon debut in 1989, a year after Makarova was born.

Date Krumm made 47 unforced errors in the 2 hour, 24-minute match.

Makarova beat Date-Krumm for the third consecutive time and the first time on grass.
