Result: Madison Keys upsets Simona Halep in Sydney

Madison Keys defeats Simona Halep 6-1 6-4 in the first round of the Sydney International.

Madison Keys has dumped seventh seed Simona Halep out of the Sydney International.

The American, who reached the quarter-finals last year, broke four times on her way to claiming the first set 6-1 in their first-round clash.

She faced only three break points - losing one - despite managing just a 36% success rate on her first serve.

Keys continued to struggle on serve in the second set, but still streaked into a 5-0 lead before Halep mounted a comeback.

However, the 18-year-old closed it out 6-4 and will face the winner of Daniela Hantuchova and Ajla Tomljanovic in the next round.
