The “Sunday Showdown” featuring Venus Williams and Madison Keys was a sold out success. A packed Stadium Court saw Venus defeat Madison 6-3 7-6(6).
After the close first set, Keys got an early lead in the second, and kept the lead until Williams broke to force a tiebreaker for the set. Both players kept their foot on the gas and were staying aggressive while trying different shots. Williams finally took the second set in the tiebreak 8-6 after being down the entire second set. A capacity crowd showed their appreciation and approval.
