Stats Corner: Five 30-Somethings In QFs
Daniela Hantuchova

NEW YORK, NY, USA - It has been quite a US Open fortnight for players 30 and older. In fact, five have made the quarterfinals - breaking an Open Era Grand Slam record. Here are the five 30+ quarterfinalists and their ages at the start of the fortnight:

Player Age At Event Start
Daniela Hantuchova 30 yrs, 4 mos
Li Na 31 yrs, 6 mos
Flavia Pennetta 31 yrs, 6 mos
Roberta Vinci 30 yrs, 6 mos
Serena Williams 31 yrs, 11 mos


Speaking of 30+, if Li, Pennetta or Williams is crowned, they will be the Open Era's oldest US Open champion, breaking the record of Margaret Court, who was 31 years and one month old when she won the 1973 US Open. Williams already became the Open Era's oldest French Open champion at 31 years and eight months earlier this year. On top of that, she became the WTA's oldest No.1 when she reclaimed the spot in February at 31 years and four months.
