Kimiko Date-Krumm took on Venus Williams Monday at the U.S. Open. The first set went well for the 43-year-old Date-Krumm, as she won 6-2. Things got a little worse after that. Not only did she lose the second set, but a bee (wasp?) decided to swarm around her which halted play. As a person who hates insects of all sorts, I can completely relate with her in this situation. Fortunately the ball kids came to the rescue and play resumed following the insect delay.
Perhaps the bee flew in from Homer’s sugar pile. (Sorry, Simpsons marathon has ruined my ability to think about anything else.)
