Pegula is blown away that she reigns over Swiatek at this stat

After hearing that she is now the player with the most WTA-1000 wins over the last two seasons, specifically 37, Pegula reacted immediately on Twitter with a motivational message. "If you told me 5 years ago when I couldn’t string 2 matches together that I would have this stat… you can always improve, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise," Jessica Pegula wrote about the stat on Twitter.

Pegula won Guadalajara

As further proof of her good performance in WTA 1000 tournaments, Jessica Pegula just won Guadalajara Open in front of Maria Sakkari.

"I’m just super excited, relieved, happy, like all the emotions," Pegula said after her victory. "Dedicating it to my mom was extra special, I know she was watching back home. Just a lot of emotions, but super excited just to get a big title next to my name.

That was something I really wanted this year, and I kept saying it was one of my goals, so to be able to accomplish it at the end of the year is really cool. I thought I just played really solid, I didn’t really make a lot of silly errors or stupid decisions.

I served really smart, I returned well. There were a lot of different points where I had to maybe slice and come in, or serve and volley, or do something different, and I just didn’t panic, I just kind of did what I had to do to win the point, and it was working." On her way to the Guadalajara title, Pegula defeated Elena Rybakina, Bianca Andreescu, Sloane Stephens, Victoria Azarenka, and Maria Sakkari.

The final match ended 6-2, 6-3 for the American player. The next tournament for Jessica Pegula is in Fort Worth, Texas, where the WTA Finals take place.
