NEW YORK -- Madison Keys, seen by some as a future No. Dane Cruikshank Hoodie . 1 player, was up against it in the third round of the US Open on Friday, trailing teenager Naomi Osaka 5-1 in the third set. But Keys rallied, found her forehand and regained her confidence to win 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (3).Was it the best comeback of her young career?For sure, she said in her on-court interview. Hands down.Keys, a 21-year-old from Rock Island, Illinois, is the No. 8 seed, her highest ever at a major. She avoided following No. 3 Garbine Muguruza as a surprising first-week victim.Osaka, an 18-year-old from Japan ranked No. 81, twice served for the victory in her first match against Keys, a semifinalist at the 2015 Australian Open. She couldnt finish off Keys, however, and was wiping away tears on court after she lost her fourth straight game to allow Keys to even the third set at 5-5.Osaka, who made it to the third round at both the Australian Open and French Open this year, was playing in just her third Grand Slam tournament and first US Open.Keys moves on to face two-time US Open runner-up and former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, who followed up her win over 2004 champion and No. 9 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova by defeating Monica Niculescu 6-3, 6-1.Once the No. 1-ranked player in the world, Wozniacki has plummeted to 74th after a series of losses and injuries. She is back in the round of 16 at a Grand Slam for the first time since Wimbledon in 2015.In the days last match, No. 2 Angelique Kerber ended 17-year-old American qualifier CiCi Bellis stay at the US Open, winning 6-1, 6-1 for her tour-leading 50th match victory of 2016.Kerber, who has a chance to overtake Serena Williams at No. 1 in the rankings at tournaments end, won the Australian Open in January for her first Grand Slam title, then was the runner-up to Williams at Wimbledon in July.Kerber moves on to face two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over Elina Svitolina.Also Friday, No. 7 Roberta Vinci, who stopped Serena Williams Grand Slam bid a year ago in New York, needed nearly two hours to top 102nd-ranked Carina Witthoeft 6-0, 5-7, 6-3.Both Vinci, the 2012 US Open doubles champion, and Wozniacki credited their past success at Flushing Meadows with helping them now.In the end, the head does a lot, said Vinci. If you think negatively, its hard to get out of tense moments. So I try to think about what I did last year, what Ive done in other years.No. 13 Johanna Konta upset 24th-seeded Belinda Bencic 6-2, 6-1; and Anastasija Sevastova, the player who beat Muguruza in the second round, beat Kateryna Bondarenko 6-4, 6-1.No. 12 Dominika Cibulkova lost 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to Lesia Tsurenko.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Marcus Mariota Hoodie .
