In an Olympic effort Madison Keys overpowered Petra Kvitova in the China Open quarter-finals Friday in their first meet since the Czech denied the American a bronze medal in Rio.It took two hours and 40 minutes, three sets and two tie breaks for Keys to exact revenge over the double Wimbledon champion, 6-3, 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/5).There was little between the pair in the final set, but Kvitova's 32 unforced errors to Keys' 25 ultimately cost the Czech a semi-final place -- and ended her eight match winning streak.Kvitova has had a year of up and downs since she split with her coach of seven years David Kotyza after the Australian Open in January.
