She worked so hard and we clicked right away, and got along, which helps. We had fun working on some new things. She started off winning Washington, which I was so happy for her.
Together they won the title in Washington in 2019, where Pegula outlasted Italy’s Camila Giorgi 6-2,6-2 in the final match.
