Keyes - Babos: how will the American start at her home tournament?
01/09/2020, at 21:00 GTM
USA. US Open
In face-to-face meetings the score is 3-1 in favor of Keys.
In the last two matches of tennis players, at least 22 games have been played.
In the last three matches of the first round at the US Open, Madison Keys have played at least 18 games.
Keyes is considered once again as one of the main contenders for victory in this tournament. Probably, no one has forgotten how in 2017 Madison reached the final of the US Open, losing in the final to Sloane Stevens. In 2019, the American performed well in New York again, but lost to Elina Svitolina in the 1/8 finals.
It is worth noting that Keyes did not have any special preparation for the US Open. She only played one match at the Masters in New York. Already in the first round, she was defeated by Ons Jaber (4-6, 1-6).

Babos has not played on the tour since March, so it is completely unknown what form the tennis player is in. The representative of Hungary was not particularly pleased with her results at the beginning of the season. Timea has only four victories on her account and even then, all were obtained in qualification.
Despite the defeats, there were no big failures in Babos's game. All those fights in which she lost, she resisted her rivals. For example, she lost to Dayana Yastremskaya with a score (5-7, 3-6) and to Yulia Putintseva she lost with a score of 3-6, 4-6.
As a rule, Keys starts the Majors very hard. In the last three starting matches at the US Open, she could not boast of confident victories. The exception is Australian Open this year, where Madison defeated Kasatkina (6-3, 6-1). True, before that, the American reached the final of the tournament in Brisbane.
Both tennis players have no playing practice now, so we doubt an easy victory for either of them. Most likely, the meeting will drag on and they will break the 17.5 game mark.
