Pegula drinks beer to “ease the loss” against Swiatek: “I’m trying to pee”

During her post-match press conference, Jessica Pegula chose to sip from a Heineken beer can. After a journalist told Pegula that she likes Heineken, Pegula gave two reasons why she picked up the can. “Thanks! I’m trying to pee for doping, so…” was the first reason.

“Although it does help ease the loss,” Pegula added.

The world's number one Swiatek defeated the last American woman left in the draw, eighth seed Jessica Pegula.

Swiatek won in an hour and 53 minutes, 6-3, 7-6(4). In the first set, Pegula went up a break in the fifth game only to give it back the next game. Because Pegula was unable to consolidate the break, she lost momentum and dropped her serve in the eighth game, giving Swiatek the opportunity to serve the set out and take the lead in the match.

There were five breaks of serve in the second set with Swiatek getting the chance to serve for the match in the 10th and the 12th game. On both occasions, she failed to bring up match points and handed back the break to her opponent.

In the tie-break, both opponents traded a mini-break before Swiatek composed herself to prevail in the match. The 2022 US Open’s the first time that Iga Swiatek’s reached this far in New York. Another player that recently appeared drinking beer is Petkovic

After Andrea Petkovic announced her retirement, the German tennis player posted a photo marking her first day out of the WTA circuit that got some funny remarks.

“First day of retirement, enjoying my sixpack while it lasts!” Petkovic captioned the photo. Caitlin Thompson, the founder of a media company about the culture of tennis, made Petkovic laugh with her comment: “Not even noon and you’re tweeting thirst traps from the beach what a legend,” wrote Thompson as Petkovic replied with a LOL.
