You beat me to it - lol.

Yes - congrats.

I feel of the girls in her group - vickery, duval, and keys - she
is actually the only kid with any weapons.

What are your thoughts?

I'm thinking because she is actually training thru everts and not the usta development.

That is a great group of young ladies. I have seen them all play numerous times. I agree that Madison appears to have the weapons, her shots have had that special pop to them even when she was 9. She also has a strategic mind for tennis. I hope all three girls have great futures, they are all very nice kids.

this is a huge win for madison. congrats to her and her family for this win. i think that this is the same girl who beat sharapova at wimbledon last year, right? if so then this win is even bigger. Does anyone know if she has turned pro?

Yes, Alla beat Sharapova in the 2nd round at Wimbleton and then said she didn't like Maria very much! Apparently they played Fed Cup together and didn't get along.

And this was Madison's pro debut I believe.

I know Madison :) i watched her win her first ITF title, Along with Christian Harrison in the Finals, this was in the Bahamas

Well Madison lost in the 2nd round but took 5 games off of the #10 player in the world. Not many 14 year olds can claim that!

Sounds like the match was closer than the score would indicate too:

Definately, we all know that a few key points can make or break a set.

Madison is a big hope for US tennis. She just might have that rare combination of talent, good size, work ethic, and a strategic tennis mind that makes for a successful pro player.

Lets see what the next few years brings but so far so good.

TennisCoachFLA 04-09-2009 07:59 AM

BY the way, this article is from 1 year ago. Everyone thought Madison had promise but would be years away....in 1 year it is amazing how far she has come.

We get it Brad....Kozlov is lucky, Carlos Boluda isn't much, neither is Tomic. Madison Keys who has won the Orange Bowl, the Herr, beaten the 81st player in the world and played tough vs the 10th ranked world player got lucky.....every single big match she has ever won. The 415th ranked boy who beat your kid also got lucky.

The tennis world according to Brad is a fun place!!

How do you know it was a lucky outing? How do you know
that they were having a bad day? Did you talk to them?
Were you at the match? She averaged 101mph on her
serve... Was that luck?

The tennis world is a place where development is a process that "no one" can tell the end results except for Tennis Florida and TEnniscrazed ,,when your looking at kids that are 10-14 you see some that are being built for the future some that will be known as great juniors you just can never tell, i think out of all the girls in the USA i think this girl is being built right ,she unfortunately is probably the USA best hope she's pretty solid i watched her "in PERSON" so i can give a "fair critique" of her and she is good. BTW didn't the younger Tomic destroy Boluda at the Ausi open 0 an 3 according to some standards here that means Boluda has no potential. ONE Question to TCF and Tenniscrazed have you ever seen that DB kid play in person??

who is DB? your son? how is he relevant to the conversation? has he beaten a top 100 atp player?

and i'd agree with tenniscrazed and tcf, she seems to be the real deal. how many other girls that age can take out a top 100 player? this isn't like some youtube video where we're all guessing how good the player will be, we have results bro.

those 2 would understand the question ,,I agree as i said i think she is solid ,,is she the real deal after "one" win?? i wouldn't get ahead of myself or to excited time will tell in this marathon! it was and inside joke about how one players a guarantee and another isn't, we all where rose colored glasses! LOL,l Overall i hope she does well and makes it on the tour don't want her at any d2 college.I met her at Everet she was a very pleasant girl we talked for a while she was raised right.

who's getting ahead? unless i can't read, no one said she's gonna be #1 in the world. the thread is titled "congratulations..." it was meant to highlight the big win she had. yes it was "one" win, though i don't know why that has to be quoted. so she takes out a top pro player, we say good job, and you get mad...why again?

not mad I just said she's a "pleasant girl" ''she's probably the USA best bet" , ""hope she does well"" ,""enjoyed talking to her"", ""watched her in person thought she was good"" ,HMMM where do you want me to stop, Oh yah the """best part""" she was raised right!! now please help me to understand how this is interpreted as mad!! genius lololololol BTW i never said anything about no.1 either

ihearit1st 04-10-2009 03:26 AM

ok, then i guess you didnt say this, "its to early even though shes had a lucky outing.And no dout these other players were just having a bad day."

it wasnt lucky. she won. her opponent wasn't injured. petrova even said she was tough.
