Connecticut Open commit and Rising Star Madison Keys has advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time in her young career, following a career-best semifinal performance at the Australian Open earlier this season. The World No. 21 has been extremely impressive, leading the field with 42 aces at the tournament. Let’s take a look at her road thus far at The All England Club.
First Round: Stefanie Voegele, 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-4
Keys needed three sets and an extra day to defeat Stefanie Voegele 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-4. Knotted at 2-2 in the third set, the match was suspended due to darkness and resumed the following morning. The American seized the upper-hand in the third set, winning four of the next six games en route to victory.
Second Round: Elizaveta Kulichkova, 6-4, 7-6(3)
The World No. 21 followed her opening round win with an impressive victory against Kulichkova, closing out the 19-year-old Russian in straight sets. The win marked Keys’ third consecutive trip to the third round at Wimbledon.
Third Round: Tatjana Maria, 6-4, 6-4
German Tatjana Maria was the next test for Keys, and the young American produced an astounding effort to advance. Keys defeated Maria 6-4, 6-4 to secure a berth into the second weekend where she will meet Olga Govortsova in a fourth round tilt.
