to begin with, she's young: just 17 (compared to Li Na's 30). Madison Keys qualified to play this tournament, and I assume she'll be playing AO also. She plays right-handed, has powerful groundstrokes for her age and dominant serves over 100 mph. Obviously exciting for American women's tennis, I doubt that she's even graduated high school yet. She lives in Florida, trains at the Chris Evert Academy in Boca Raton.

today against Li, she made a lot of australian fans with her relatively big serve and the way she was speeding around the court. She started the week at world no. 135, but she earned 120 points by making it to the Sydney QF, so that ranking w/b improving. She beat Lucie Safarova 62 61 in the first round of the main draw, then beat Jie Zheng 61 64 to face Li in the QF

I look forward to seeing her compete at AO, but she did appear to be in danger of experiencing a wardrobe malfunction the way she was bouncing around today!
Thanks for the info - I'll look out for her. And let's hope for no wardrobe malfunctions.
