World number nine Madison Keys is yet to play a match this year due to injury issues but the American is set to return to the tour at Indian Wells this coming week.
Last year she made big improvements to her game with a bit more net play introduced to her game and starred at tournaments in Rome, Birmingham (where she won) and also made the semi-finals of the Olympics which led to her debut at the WTA Finals where she left the tournament during the round robin.
It was also announced a while back that former world number one and three time Grand Slam champion Lindsay Davenport had re-joined the team after some time away.
I wouldn’t expect anything major from Keys for the first few weeks as she finds her feet again on the tour but at Indian Wells and Miami there is a great opportunity to pick up points.
One thing I would like to see more of from Keys is that competitive side at the smaller tournaments. She made the headlines a few times last year on some big stages but fell short in matches you would have put her down to win.
