American Madison Keys reaches fourth round of Australian Open

American Madison Keys reaches fourth round of Australian Open”

US Open finalist Madison Keys continued her serene progress through the Australian Open draw with a 6-3, 6-4 win over unseeded Ana Bogdan on Saturday. Earlier in the day, Lauren Davis recovered from a set down against Andrea Petkovic to book her spot in the third round - final score, 4-6 6-0 6-0.

Keys, who missed last year's Australian Open after undergoing surgery on her injured left wrist, will next play the victor of Saturday's match between Aliaksandra Sasnovich and No. 8 seed Caroline Garcia.

"Ana played great today and made me play my best tennis", Keys added.

Keys, who has spent a tick over three hours on court this week, booked a fourth-round date with eighth seed Caroline Garcia.

The Frenchwoman, who won two WTA titles past year to send her rocketing up the rankings, proved too much for unseeded Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus, winning 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 on Hisense Arena.

With the hard-fought win, Garcia - twice a title victor on tour a year ago - has spent exactly double the amount of time on court as Keys.

"I am always happy if I'm not the drama, and I feel like US Open I was the drama every night match that I played", Keys said.

"I know the record is pretty good", the 25-year-old said after taking her head-to-head record to 6-2 against her Fed Cup teammate.

"Always some tiebreaks, so you never know and I think she can be pretty risky on the court".

"Lindsay is awesome. We've had three years together and she has taught me how to handle big moments like this", said Keys.

"I haven't done too well against her before and I want to improve". Keys unleashed seven aces to counter just one double fault, she had 16 winners and just nine unforced errors, and won five of 10 break points. The Romanian top seed awaits the victor of Australian Ashleigh Barty's third-round clash with Japan's Naomi Osaka.
