Comment on this story

Rock Island native Madison Keys reached new heights on Monday. The 17-year-old tennis pro climbed into the top 100 of the WTA rankings for the first time in her career.

Keys sits at No. 81, up 24 spots from the previous rankings. So far this season, she has earned 811 points in 20 tournaments.

Even more impressive than the ranking itself is Keys being the second-youngest player in the top 100. Only Croatia's Donna Vekic, 16, is younger than Keys.
