Stosur: Keys just needs to put pieces together

by: Matt Cronin March 09, 2013

Samantha Stosur, who defeated Madison Keys at Indian Wells, 6-3, 6-4, praises the 18-year-old American.

“I think she’s got a big game,” former U.S. Open champion Stosur said. “Obviously her forehand is massive. She’s got a very big serve. She’s got pretty decent kick serve for a second serve. She handled a lot of my slice actually quite well sometimes. She’s got a big game. She’s just got to put all the pieces together. She’s only 18. I had lots of pieces like that when I was 18 and wasn’t as together as probably what she is now.”
