Defending US Open doubles champion Bethanie Mattek-Sands has long been a charismatic and beloved member of the traveling tennis circus. But during Wimbledon, she suffered a major injury that even threatened to end her career. While Bethanie recovers, she’s here in New York with #GameSetMattek—taking us behind-the-scenes with exclusive access to many members of the tennis community.
Bethanie and Madison Keys are close buddies, so this conversation was a particularly fun and memorable one. Their chat started with the topic of makeup, which they apparently text each other about constantly.
On a more serious note, Keys can relate to what BMS is going through, as she’s dealt with numerous injuries throughout her career. So when she said, “Remember why you’re doing it, remember why you love it,” the words brought extra special meaning.
