Madison Keys tells the New York Times that the prospect of playing Roland Garros excites her. The 18-year-old American is youngest player in the Top 80. She reached the quarterfinals of Sydney and the third round of the Australian Open in January, and is competing in the Family Circle Cup this week. With her current ranking, she will get directly into the main draw of Roland Garros.

“I think when you’re younger and you’re watching people play on TV, you always say that you want to be at the French Open—you want to be playing Grand Slams,” Keys said. “But then actually being there doing it, it kind of blows you away thinking, Wow, I actually used to think maybe I could do that one day, and now I’m actually doing it.”
