Sloane Stephens battled past compatriot Madison Keys 6-3, 1-6, 7-6(7) to reach the second round of the US Open on Monday.

Keys looked a bit rusty in the opening set, losing her serve in her second service game as 2019 champion Stephens took the lead.

But Keys, a former finalist herself in 2017, stormed back in impressive fashion, breaking Stephens in the first game of the set and never looking back, taking the set 6-1 in the end.
