Haven't heard of Madison Keys? Well, take note of the professional tennis player, who is quickly becoming the new face of the sport.
The unseeded 19-year-old athlete has been making headlines for dominating the Australian Open, beating out 34-year-old Venus Williams in a match on Wednesday which sent the Illinois-native to the semi-finals.
Today, she took on Serena Williams, who is currently ranked No. 1 in women's singles tennis, and while Keys lost the competition, she put forth a solid effort and the final score—7-6 (5), 6-2—was far closer than many expected.
Although Keys and Serena had never played together before today (if Madison had won, she would have been the eighth player to have ever beaten both Williams sisters in the same tournament), the two have previously expressed their mutual admiration for each other.
