WTA Tour 2017

Madison Keys

Madison Keys is a 21-year-old American tennis player.

Her 2017 WTA Tour will be slightly delayed due to a wrist injury she is recovering from. She will miss the Australian Open, but look out for her midseason.

Keys is coming off of a 2016 that saw her make a debut at the season-ending WTA Tour Finals in Singapore. The young player may very well be the future of American women’s tennis. She had deep runs at both the French Open and the US Open in 2016 and saw herself break into the WTA top 10. Currently ranked No. 8, Keys may slip some while she is out recovering, but will quickly bounce back in the rankings.

Look for Madison Keys to make a surge in mid to late 2017.
