Brad Gilbert mentioned on ESPN that Taylor Townsend once played a 69 yr old woman in an ITF circuit a few years ago. That got me curious so I did some search, and came up with this article. It turned out, it was a second round qualifying match for a $25k event, meaning someone lost to this 69 yr old.

Rosalyn Small lost 6-0, 6-1 to Gail Falkenberg. And here is her career record.

She has lost all matches in the first rounds of qualifying, with most of them being double bagels. And yet she has earned $3164 for her career. How did she even get into those tournaments? Is there any minimum requirement for playing in the qualifying for the lowest level tournaments?
