Madison Keys moves into US Open fourth round, but two top seeds crash out
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.”
