The 155th edition of the Plate for Can

  • 导出博客文章MELBOURNE, Australia - Madison Keys remembers watching Lindsay Davenport play against Venus Williams in the Wimbledon finals. Jason Pominville Jersey . Just dont ask her for many details.I vaguely remember it. I was in our house in Florida. Other than that I cant tell you much, the 19-year-old American said. I was so young, I have no idea.For the record, Davenport, a three-time major winner, played two finals against Williams at the All England Club — in 2000 and 2005. Keys would have been 5 years old the first time around, and 10 years old the second.Keys is now one of the most promising of the next generation of American players, long considered a possible future Grand Slam champion herself.After rising dramatically in the rankings in 2013 and cracking the top 50, however, her game seemed to plateau and she struggled with consistency, particularly in big matches. At the end of last year, she made a bold decision — she turned to the 38-year-old Davenport for help.With Davenport and her husband, Jon Leach, now by her side as coaches, Keys is into the third round at the Australian Open, one of seven American woman to make it this far.She credits Davenport with being a steadying influence.We get along really well and we play similar games so its really nice to have someone who not only plays somewhat like me, but also has gone through it, knows the nerves, the stresses, all of that, Keys said.Keys now faces one of the biggest tests of her young career — she plays two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in a night match on Rod Laver Arena on Saturday for a spot in the fourth round. Shes never made it to the second week of a major before.Im sure no matter what, Ill walk on the court and be nervous, but its one of those things where you just go out and do your best and walk off and be happy with it, she said.After years of hand-wringing about the state of U.S. tennis, the Americans have to be pretty happy about their week in Melbourne so far. Joining Keys in the third round on the womens side were Serena and Venus Williams, Varvara Lepchenko, Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Madison Brengle and Coco Vandeweghe. John Isner and Steven Johnson made the third round for the men.Mattek-Sands lost her third-round match to French Open finalist Simona Halep on Friday. The other eight Americans play on Saturday.Im just so happy Im in a press conference and someone said its been a good day for Americans instead of Oh, American tennis... Keys said. Its awesome. Theres been a lot of good matches. Even some of the losses have been really close matches with really high-ranked players.Davenport is going to get on the court herself, too.She has seniors shes getting ready for, Keys said, before realizing her mistake. Sorry, not seniors, legends. Shes going to yell at me later. Jack Eichel Jersey . The 155th edition of the Plate for Canadian-foaled three-year-olds, the oldest continuously run stakes race in North America, will be televised live on TSN in HD (High Definition) in a special presentation from 4:30 – 6:00 pm ET. Post time is 5:38 pm.
