(REUTERS) - American teenager Madison Keys has toppled fourth seed Petra Kvitova 6-4, 7-5 in an impressive display of clean hitting to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open.
Keys' win made it four American women in the last 16 at Melbourne Park, the most since five made it to the fourth round of the 2003 Australian Open.
She will play compatriot Madison Brengle for a place in the quarter-finals.
"I think my hands are still shaking," said Keys, who is coached by former number one Lindsay Davenport.
"I'm excited to play Maddie in the next round."
