Madison Keys Defeats Venus Williams at the Australian Open
Quad City native Madison Keys took down Venus Williams last night at the Australian Open, moving her into the semifinals.
“I’m very happy I’m into the semifinals, but the moment is definitely sweeter being able to play Venus,” Keys said. “You just have to enjoy the moment, and I did enjoy it, and I get to enjoy another moment next round.”
Williams said: “I definitely didn’t serve as consistently as I wanted to, and I felt just not as aggressive off the ground as I would have liked. I think in this kind of match you have to be aggressive but I give a lot of credit to her. She was swinging freely and most of them went in for her so it’s great for her.”
Madison will now have to face the other Williams sister, Serena, in the semifinals. Women's Semifinals air on ESPN2 tonight from 8:30pm to 1am.
