Five minutes with: Madison Keys

Rolex clock at The Championships.
by William Denny
Thursday 27 June 2013

Despite beating Briton Heather Watson in the first round, Madison Keys is earning herself many admirers as she progresses into the third round of Wimbledon. By beating the world No.30 Mona Barthel in straight sets (6-2, 6-4) and with many top seeds withdrawing, the 18-year-old American will be hoping that she can go deep into The Championships.

Madison told me what animal she would be and what she would choose between Pimms and strawberries and cream.

Who would you want to act as you in a movie?

Probably Beyonce because I have a complete and utter girl crush on her (laughter).

If you could be an animal, what would you be?

Interesting question, I’ve never been asked that before. I would like to be a panda bear because they are my favourite animals.

What three things would you take on holiday?

My Kindle, my phone and… sunglasses because it would be somewhere hot.

What is your favourite meal?

I love Chinese food. If you give me any Chinese food I’m happy (laughter).

Which player, past or present, would you like to give you a tour around Wimbledon?

Probably Martina Navratilova because she won so many titles and she’s really nice.

And finally… Pimms or strawberries and cream?

Pimms. Pimms all the way (laughter).

20:24...But boy, it was a barrow-load of fun. I hope you enjoyed it even half as much as we did. Thank you for all your messages throughout, you've been the glue holding us together as the edges frayed amid the madness. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for us Brits to raise a toast to Andy Murray and Fred Perry. British sporting legends both.

20:19It was the wackiest of Wimbledons with the most unlikely of headline-makers: Sergiy Stakhovsky, Steve Darcis, Michelle Larcher de Brito, Kimiko-Date Krumm, Jerzy Janowicz, Sabine Lisicki, Marion Bartoli...
