Kimiko Date-Krumm Opens German Bakery in Tokyo

Kimiko Date-Krumm is known for serving up a few bagels, sets that is, on the tennis court.  Now the Japanese star is serving up something new in her country.

WTA: Q&A with Lindsay Davenport

“Frau Krumm” is a new German bakery opened by Date-Krumm in Tokyo’s Ebisu area.

Per Japan Today, the new bakery will sell traditional German bread and baked goods.

“It’s a dream come true,” Date-Krumm said about the new venture that was inspired by her German husband, race car driver Michael Krumm.

Date-Krumm enjoyed the European tradtiion of having fresh baked goods and coffee for breakfast for many years and wanted to bring that experience to Japan.

The 45-year-old former top 10 player, who last competed at this year's Australian Open, is not officially retired from tennis yet, but hopes to open more bakeries across Tokyo.

Date-Krumm won eight WTA titles and is the second oldest player ever to win a WTA title when she won Seoul in 2009.
