6-2, 6-1. 56 minutes. Madison Keys looked like a giant and a #1 seed in taking care of 2nd round opponent Tamira Paszek last night. Keys, who won a second straight wild card into the Australian Open main draw, is on to the 3rd round of a Grand Slam for the second time in the teen’s nascent pro career.
With that, she’ll face 5 seed Angelique Kerber in the 3rd round. Kerber is no slouch, but this is another match that Madison has a reasonable chance to win. Keys has been working on hitting “a ton of out-wide forehands” all winter and her training has apparently paid off.
