AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2015 QUARTERFINALS: 19-Year-Old Madison Keys Plows A More Than Solid Field To Reach the Semifinals
Tuesday, January 27, 2015
American Madison Keys successful plays her way into the 2015 Australian Open semifinals where none other than Serena Williams awaits her.
Well, it wasn't the match that I expected, nor was it the outcome I hoped for ~ but it is indeed a good sign.
It is incredible to have watched American Madison Keys grow up and elevate herself and her game to its present position. This 19-year-old young woman came into the 2015 Australian Open Tournament with nothing to lose, and has lost nothing.
Casey Dellacqua, Petra Kvitova, and Madison Brengle all had their Australian Open hopes dashed as Keys continued to mount an offense and defense that would bring her to this point.
“The moment is definitely sweeter being able to play Venus,” said Keys, who got into the sport after admiring a Williams tennis dress at the age of four. “It’s amazing – you just have to embrace the moment – I did, and I get to enjoy another moment in the next round.”
With a 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 victory over Venus, Madison is headed to the semifinal round of the 2015 Australian Open ~ what a moment!
Moment killer: Venus' baby sis' awaits her ~ God bless you.
