Madison Keys storms into Australian Open semi-finals

Madison Keys maintained her comeback with a beating of French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova on Tuesday, advancing to her first Australian Open semi-final in five years.

Keys, a former world No. 7 and US Open semifinalist whose ranking has fallen to 51 due to injuries and a lack of form over the last year, was too strong for the Czech fourth seed, who battled in the scorching Melbourne heat, blasting to a 6-3, 6-2 triumph on Rod Laver Arena.

The American’s reward is a semifinal match against either world No. 1 and local favourite Ashleigh Barty or compatriot and 21st seed Jessica Pegula.

“It means a lot,” said Keys.

“Last year was really hard. I did everything that I could with my team to just reset in the offseason and focus on starting fresh for the new season, really starting from zero and not worrying about last year. Wow, that’s gone well so far. I am really proud of myself.”
