Kerber downs Keys in quarters

W2W4 at Australian Open: Keys, Sandgren hoping to give US contingent more success

Is Madison Keys Next?

Kerber's comparatively low ranking is a result of a tough 2017 season for the former world No 1, but a fine start to 2018, which has included the Sydney Open title, has provided plenty of evidence that the two-time grand slam champion is rediscovering her past form.

Angelique Kerber didn't have the kind of season expected of her past year after winning the Australian Open and U.S. Open titles in 2016. "I'm used to her", said Halep, who leads their head-to-head series 5-1.

For a while it appeared former Australian and U.S. Open champion Kerber's progression could unravel against No. 88 Hsieh Su-wei, a former top-ranked doubles player with a double-handed grip on both sides, until she regained momentum for a 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 win.

Keys said: "She obviously is awesome at getting lots of balls back and makes you feel like you have to go for bigger shots than you would against other players, because she's going to get two, three more balls".

The 21-year-old wobbled when serving out the match, squandering a 40-0 lead and seeing a total of five match points disappear into a cloudless sky as world number 97 Sandgren battled gamely.

Simona Halep is coming off a straight sets win over Karolina Pliskova that took 17 games to decide.

Kerber simply dominated a red hot Keys by winning 52 percent of her return points and dropping just four first serve points. But if you saw the way she figured out the game of one-dimensional No. 4 seed Elina Svitolina in the quarterfinals, you know this will be no gimme for Wozniacki.

"I have to be strong in my legs and be calm and start playing like I did at the end of the match". "She's hitting hard, so I had to stay close to the baseline, and also strong".

But she could not find a way to do justice to her abilities on Wednesday, making almost twice as many unforced errors as winners and often rushing when patience would have been advisable.

The Czech only managed two aces for the match and won just 55 per cent of points on her first serve.

"Always when I play here I feel such great memories". If I don't play well I don't have the chance.

"She is moving well and returning the ball good in the court", Halep said.

Earlier, the German enjoyed a similarly dominant romp past last year's US Open finalist Madison Keys 6-1, 6-2. Now that long-deferred Grand Slam title seems tantalizingly within grasp for this more mature, wiser competitor. "I had similar situations in the past where I found myself struggling a little bit with some injuries during the match, then I managed to win".
