The American got off to a flying start, dropping only five service points during the opening set. In the second set, Keys won five straight games to finish off the match in 69 minutes.
The victory secured Keys her eighth career Grand Slam quarterfinal and first Australian Open quarterfinal appearance since 2018.
The 26-year-old has had a dominant start to 2022, kicking off the season with a 10-1 record. Keys will look to keep the streak going when she faces off against No. 4 Barbora Krejcikova.
The Czech star downed former Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka in straight sets to earn a quarterfinal matchup against Keys.
