Barbora Krejcikova is coming into the quarter-finals after her comprehensive straight-sets victory over former Grand Slam champion Victoria Azarenka in the previous round. The Czech star had a sensational 2021. From being a no-one in the tennis circuit to winning her maiden singles grand slam, winning 3 ATP titles, debuting at the WTA finals, and rising to No. 3 in the rankings, the Czech superstar has been living the dream. Krejcikova moved up a gear in 2021, with her performances propelling her up to No. 2 in the world.
Meanwhile, her opponent Madison Keys is coming off a shock upset of Paula Badosa, one of the favourites for the title, in straight sets. The performance was as convincing at the scoreline. The American had a disappointing last season as well, her ranking plummeted to 65 and she finished outside the top-20 for the first time in seven years. The former World No.7 was forced to sit out at last year’s Australian Open after she tested positive for COVID-19. However, she did start the 2022 season well, clinching the WTA 500 Adelaide International 2 title to start her season.
