Jessica Pegula beats Coco Gauff in semi-final of WTA finals


Jessica Pegula beat doubles partner and fellow American Coco Gauff in a semi-final match at the WTA finals.

The Korean American tennis player won her semi-final match in straight sets: 6-2, 6-1. The victory was no tough feat. The 19-year-old Gauff won the U.S. Open in September and is currently ranked no. 3 in the world.

“I managed to get my act together at the end of the year,” Pegula told reporters after the match per CNN. “I’ve done a good job of resetting coming here.”

Pegula is set to face world no. 2 Iga Świątek in the finals on Monday, November 6.

“It’s probably my biggest final ever,” Pegula said, according to CNN. “It’s going to give me a lot of confidence going into next year.”
