Jessica Pegula (born February 24, 1994) is an American professional tennis player.

Career[edit]

On August 30, 2011, Pegula was granted a wild-card exemption into the main draw of the U.S. women's doubles tournament where she was paired with Taylor Townsend. The pair eventually lost in the third round to the third-seeded team of Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova.

In March 2012, Pegula was given a wildcard to the qualifying draw in Indian Wells, and surprised higher ranked players Bojana Jovanovski and Paula Ormaechea to qualify for the main draw where she lost to Magdaléna Rybáriková in three sets.

Pegula made her Grand Slam debut at the 2015 US Open as a qualifier. She defeated Shuko Aoyama, Margarita Gasparyan and Melanie Oudin to reach the main draw where she defeated Alison Van Uytvanck in the first round. In the second, Pegula was defeated by Dominika Cibulkova 5–7, 7–5, 6–3.

Personal life[edit]

Pegula is the oldest daughter of Kim Pegula and the middle daughter of professional sports investor and natural gas tycoon Terry Pegula. She resides in Boca Raton, Florida. In August 2016, it was announced that Jessica and her sister Kelly would be opening a quick serve restaurant called Healthy Scratch in HarborCenter, a ice hockey themed mixed-use development owned by her parents in Buffalo, New York.[1] The Healthy Scratch business will expand to food truck service in 2017.[2]
