Ranked: 5th in United States of America

Madison Keys (born February 17, 1995) is an American professional tennis player. She achieved a career-high ranking of No. 7 in the world in October 2016, and has been consistently ranked inside the top 25 by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) since early 2015. Keys has played in one major final at the 2017 US Open, and also competed at the 2017 WTA Finals. She has won three WTA tournaments, all at the Premier level.

Known for having a big serve and one of the most powerful forehands in the game, Keys has used her aggressive playing style to become one of the leaders of the next generation of American tennis alongside Sloane Stephens and CoCo Vandeweghe. She debuted in the Top 10 of the WTA rankings in 2016, becoming the first American woman to realize this milestone since Serena Williams seventeen years earlier. When Keys and Stephens faced off against each other in the 2017 US Open final, they snapped a streak of no American women aside from the Williams sisters appearing in a Grand Slam tournament final since 2005. Keys has also had success on all surfaces, having reached at least the quarterfinal stage of all four Grand Slam tournaments.

Keys was inspired to start playing tennis after seeing the dresses Venus Williams was wearing at Wimbledon on TV. Originally from the Quad Cities in Illinois, she moved to Florida to train at the Evert Tennis Academy. Her coaches regarded her as a prodigy and believed she had a good chance to win a major title. Keys turned pro on her 14th birthday and quickly showed her potential by becoming one of the youngest players to win a WTA Tour level match a few months later. She also won a World TeamTennis exhibition set against then world No. 2 Serena Williams later that year. Keys first cracked the top 100 of the WTA rankings in 2013 at the age of 17. She then had her first big breakthrough at a major in early 2015 when she reached the semifinals of the Australian Open as a teenager.

what the shame with Wanq!!! set number 3 what a compromitation!!! ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

Very very low level today. You really need to work on mental skills. This is your big weakness. You gave up so quickly. You gave the match to Wang. You really to improve that because youโ€™re much stronger than wang normally..

I sorry I didn't get to see this. I can't afford to get TC Plus. What happened to having some WTA on Tennis channel? Congrats, Madison.

Wish I could watch!!! Tennis channel really sucks right now. . . The best tennis, women's, is not being played. . . : (

Congratulations Madison . Too bad TC favors showing All the menโ€™s matches and only a select few of the womenโ€™s .

The QC is so proud of you!! Keep going, Maddy! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช

Madison you are too hasty slow your game down and they canโ€™t beat you just my observation watching you

Hi Madison, I'm sorry, my name is Loris I'm Italian, I'm Maria Sharapova's boyfriend .. I've been talking to you for 2 months, you're in New York, and you see her, please tell her that she has to contact me, I I need her, to talk to her .. I love her .. please tell him that I told you this thing .. thanks ..

Dear Madison, you are gorgeous 1st off and just wanted to say i loved watching you in the us open, you were great and are a better player than Osaka. You totally deserve to be in the final and ik ur a tough chick and you'll be 2 one soon. Ill be rooting for you msg me if u want...your biggest fan, Tim

Cool hope to see you in Paris I have my ticket for the semi final. I will wear my Ultimate Software cap ๐Ÿงข to cheer for you!!! #ultifamily

You will always be Sloan beating stick

Madison, you have great athletic ability. You must believe. You must have confidence and not lose the killer instinct , like last night in NY. Believe! Toughen up! You are great!when your opp puts pressure on you , rise above and become tougher and more determined! Your body language looked defeated and too humble! You must be CONFIDENT AT ALL TIMES ON COURT! No humility on court! Good luck in the future. Great confidence will get you everywhere! Youโ€™re a great person and a great athlete and you must be leave it in your heart! ๐Ÿ’•

One game at a time. Looking great out there.

good job , hope to see you at the FRENCH OPEN

that was awesome!!! you are getting it on the clay

get 'em maddie! find that zone...this is your year open champ...will beat serena in the final no less...go rocks and vikes.

I watched her lose today, just thinking she must have had a very bad day. Better luck next time.

Congratulations, Madison! Good luck in Rome and in Rolland GarroS !

Congrats...enjoy the match with Sloane.

I don't have tennis plus either congrats Madison

I'm going to have a Madison"Avenue" Keys t-shirt made up!

madison some archaeologists want to dig out that thing on your left needs studied

Looking forward to seeing you play some good Tennis this summer ๐ŸŽพ

Madison!!! great win over Putintseva, and your first semi-final at RG!! Congratulations!!! Also back in the top 10 again, where you belong!! Now you go up against your friend Sloane, this time I know the outcome will be different than your US open final encounter!! I know that you can and will win this time. You had and incredible run at the US open and when you got to the final it was as if a different Madison was playing that match. Take all those lessons learned and experiences and use it for the positive in your semi here. All the matches Sloane has played so far she was able to win by use of her forehand and her opponents going to that wing constantly, Your forehand is even better, but by going predominantly to her backhand I think you would make things much easier on yourself!! Have a great semi and I know I will see you also in the final!!!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

Give me ur number

Madison Keys I watched your fourth-round match today. I thought you lost the match because your shots were not on target. To me, you should have won the game but for your unforced errors which you seemed interested in just hitting the ball at random. Many times you seemed interested in hitting the ball regardless of the outcome instead of targetting and winning the point. Most times I have watched you play with the same pattern huge shots that mostly were out. Today`s game, for instance, you should have broken your opponent on her first serve in the third set but you mostly over hit the ball and you ended squandering the five chances to break particularly in the third set. Please watch the video for today`s game you will agree with me otherwise you a very good tennis player. I know if you minimize over hitting you will compete to the highest level and win many majors. Please, I am only a concerned individual who likes to watch tennis do not think otherwise. Stay blessed.

Damn a noob. Wow. Go practice until US Open.. wow noob.

Just cant lose. Fake injurie instead.. omfg

Go Madison!!!!! The best this year!!!!
