Fourteen-year-old Madison Keys played her first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour match today in Ponte Vedre Beach, Florida, and won it. Keys defeated Alla Kudryavtseva, 7-5, 6-4. Keys hit four aces, and served out the match at love. A product of the Evert Academy, Keys is known for her tendency to come forward and rush the net, a delightful oddity in this age of heavy (and often boring) baseline smacking.
She may have all she can handle in the second round of the MPS Group Championships. Her opponent is likely to be world number 10 Nadia Petrova.
