Madison Keys: 'I had to change approach'

Madison Keys believes that she was forced to stray from her natural game during her loss to Serena Williams in the fourth round of the US Open.

Madison Keys has claimed that she was forced to change her approach in the 6-3 6-3 defeat to Serena Williams in the fourth round of the US Open on Sunday.

Despite matching the world number one for long spells, Keys never looked capable of causing a shock against her American rival and she admits that it was difficult to stick to her natural game.

"She put a lot of pressure on me to have to kind of almost overplay. In a sense I feel like she made very little unforced errors, making me hit a lot of winners, and served really, really well," the 20-year-old told the US Open website.

"I felt like I was going for it more than I normally would have. I felt like if I didn't hit a winner I wouldn't get to the next ball."

Serena will meet her sister Venus Williams in the last eight.
