Tennis 17 year old American Madison Keys continued her rise up the ranks with a first round win over fellow American Melanie Oudin at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells on Thursday night.

Keys beat Oudin 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 to set up a second round showdown with seventh seed Samantha Stosur. Oudin was once a rising 17 year old star herself but has since struggled to replicate the form that took her to the quarter finals of the US Open.

After the win, Keys said that both of them did not play thier best tennis since they were a bit nervous and that knowing each other so well made it difficult.

She also said that she would need to serve better if she hopes to upset the former US Open champion Stosur.

Keys was one of three Americans to win on Thrusday along with 22 year old Jamie Hamption and 16 year old Taylor Townsend.
