World No. 9 Madison Keys advanced to the round of 16 at the BNP Paribas Open Monday with a 57-minute victory over Japan’s Naomi Osaki, 6-1, 6-4.
Keys hasn’t played all season due to a wrist injury but looked as strong as ever in her match last night. “I definitely had really low expectations, which is probably why, when I was up there and serving for the match in the first round, I was like ‘Oh, this is exciting.’ I didn’t think this was going to happen,” said Keys according to Tennis Now.
The 22-year old has been working with a new coach, Lindsay Davenport. Keys are Davenport also worked together in 2015.
