Keys Joins Record Books



PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL, USA - American Madison Keys added her name to the history books Monday, becoming the seventh-youngest player ever to win a Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles main draw match.
Keys, who played her first professional event on the ITF Women's Circuit recently in Fort Walton Beach but fell first round, was a wildcard into The MPS Group Championships this week and made excellent use of that, beating world No.81 Alla Kudryavtseva of Russia, 75 64. She rallied from 5-2 down to win the first set and hit four aces in the second set - including one on match point.
"The last couple of days were just practice and getting ready for my first round, and after today I have to go back out and do the same thing for my next match," Keys said. "I don't really look past my next match. I just take it day by day."
Keys, originally from Chicago, now lives in Boca Raton and trains at the Evert Academy, coached by John Evert. Among her junior accomplishments are Under 12 titles at Eddie Herr and the Orange Bowl in 2007, and she lists clay as her favorite surface. At the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami two years ago, Portugal's Michelle Larcher de Brito became the seventh-youngest player to win a singles main draw match on the Tour; Keys beat her by just four days.


The following is a list of the 10 youngest players ever to win a main draw match in singles on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour:
1. Fernandez, Mary Joe (13 years & 6 months - 1985 Miami)
2. Capriati, Jennifer (13 years & 11 months - 1990 Boca Raton)
3. Graf, Steffi (13 years, 11 months & 10 days - 1983 Roland Garros)
4. Hingis, Martina (14 years & 1 week - 1994 Zürich)
5. Rinaldi, Kathy (14 years & 3 weeks - 1981 Amelia Island)
6. Austin, Tracy (14 years & 1 month - 1977 Portland)
7. Keys, Madison (14 years & 48 days - 2009 Ponte Vedra Beach)
8. Larcher de Brito, Michelle (14 years & 52 days - 2007 Miami)
9. Rehe, Stephanie (14 years & 2 months - 1984 Hershey)
10. Sabatini, Gabriela (14 years, 2 months & 2 weeks - 1984 Indianapolis)

Re: Madison Keys...future star

This is really great "good news story!" Very happy for her.

ps, But I still think she turned pro way too young...mostly for emotional/development reasons. If she did it to be able to accept a Nike contract, then just think how screwed she got for signing so early. Imagine what the deal would have been if she had won this match before she signed.

Good point. I think junior stars have to be very careful. A good junior career at a young age, hype in the media, and sponsors don't insure a good pro career. Sometimes it can actually hinder them. Prime example there would be Donald Young...

I'm pretty sure she is injured which should hopefully explain the bad loss she had in singles last week

Re: Madison Keys...future star

Madison is going through a growth spurt at the moment and because of that she has tendinitis in her hip, that's why she pulled out of Paris.

Re: Madison Keys...future star

Tendinitis in her hip? That doesn't sound good at all. (Not to be overly dramatic here, but hip issues ended Jamea Jackson and Gustavo Kuerten's careers.) Especially at her age, the most important thing is to take care of her health.

Re: Madison Keys...future star

Growth spurt=good. Tendinitis=Bad. Hopefully she takes a break, relaxes, and lets things heal.
hammerhead, your post made me sad. Poor Jamea. It's such a shame when promising players get their career yanked right out from under them
