Madison Keys has moved into the fourth round at the US Open after overcoming Aleksandra Krunic.

Keys lost in the final last year to Sloane Stephens, and she’ll be aiming to go one better this time around.

She was made to work hard for it against Krunic, though, who took Keys to three sets before finally succumbing 4-6 6-1 6-2.

“I was definitely a little nervous and she came out playing really well and put a lot of pressure on me from the start,” said Keys.

“I’m happy to be in the next round.”

Elsewhere, Dutch 13th seed Kiki Bertens was knocked out by Czech Marketa Vondrousova 7-6 (7-4) 2-6 7-6 (7-1).

There was also joy for Carla Suarez Navarro, who beat sixth seed Caroline Garcia 5-7 6-4 7-6.
