After trading a few blows, Millman saved a set point with an unreturned 100mph second serve. The Slovak got on the board for 3-1 with a forehand victor down the line, but Keys reeled off the final three games, breaking for 5-1 after Cibulkova punched a backhand volley wide on break point, then holding in the next game with two aces and a backhand down-the-line victor on set point.
