Jessica Pegula opens up on her wealthy background: I try to be very down-to-earth

Jessica Pegula acknowledged that she was probably more privileged than other people because of her background but noted that she has always tried to be "very down-to-earth" person. The Pegula family is one of the wealthiest families in the United States as her father Terry owns NFL's Buffalo Bills and NHL's Buffalo Sabres.

Terry Pegula's net worth is estimated at around $5.7 billion. “No, I just mean like with my family and stuff, you know, I know I was more privileged than other people, and I'm aware of that. I try to be very down-to-earth, and I think I am,” Pegula said, per Sportskeeda.

“Yeah, I know that's maybe not the story people gravitate towards, right? They may think it's interesting. I know some people do, but, yeah, I'm aware of that and I know that”.

Pegula: I have earned my respect

Pegula, who is currently the top-ranked American female tennis player, is 28 years old and definitely a well-known figure on the WTA Tour.

After spending some time with Pegula and seeing who she is as a person, players started giving respect to the 28-yar-old. “I also think I have a lot of people's respect as well. I think it's kind of known at least on tour and with players that, yeah, I have that respect.

But again, it's kind of under the radar. So I don't know. Maybe that's just me, I guess,” Pegula added. Meanwhile, Pegula has had a great 2022 season. One of the most stunning things in 2022 is that Pegula, even though she is having a great season, hasn't yet won any titles this year.

This season, Pegula ended runner-up at a WTA 1000 event in Madrid, while she reached the semifinal at WTA 1000 events in Miami and Toronto. Pegula has also had a few deep Grand Slam runs this year, reaching back-to-back Major quarterfinals at the Australian Open and French Open.
