Madison Keys surveyed the wreckage of her US Open rout at the hands of close friend Sloane Stephens and told the new champion to foot the bar bill when the championship party starts.
Keys, the 15th seed, was trounced 6-3, 6-0 by World No. 83 Stephens in a one-sided final on Saturday that lasted just over an hour.
But Keys fully expected her pal to make up for the pain she caused. "Of course I will go to the celebration, I would 100% go. She can buy me drinks, all of the drinks," said Keys. Stephens would have no problem in funding the party after the win which earned her a staggering $3.7m.
