American tennis player Jessica Pegula showcased her dominance in the season-ending WTA Finals in Cancun by securing a spot in the semi-finals with an undefeated performance in the group stage. Pegula defeated Maria Sakkari of Greece with a score of 6-3, 6-2.

At 29 years old, Pegula is the oldest player in the tournament. Despite going winless in her WTA Finals debut last year, she displayed exceptional control and skill throughout the match, taking advantage of Sakkari’s 35 unforced errors and windy conditions.

In an interview with Tennis Channel, Pegula expressed her satisfaction with her performance in challenging circumstances, emphasizing the importance of maintaining focus and precision in such conditions.

Pegula’s impressive run in the group matches included an upset victory against Aryna Sabalenka, the world number one. Sabalenka faced a crucial match against Elena Rybakina in order to secure the second semi-final spot from the group.

Sabalenka and Rybakina have a history of competitive matches, with Sabalenka leading 4-0 before Rybakina’s recent victories. Sabalenka, who has voiced concerns about the court conditions, aims not only for the coveted WTA Finals title, but also for the year-end number one ranking, which is also contended by Polish player Iga Swiatek, the reigning French Open champion.
