Pegula makes Tour-title breakthrough by hammering Giorgi in Washington

Pegula, daughter of Bills owners, wins Citi Open

Pegula - who was joined on court by her pet dog during the trophy presentation - now holds a 3-1 head-to-head record over Giorgi and goes one better than her losing effort in the Quebec final a year ago.

Saisai Zheng of China captured her first WTA title with a 6-3, 7-6 (3) victory against second-seeded Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus in San Jose, Calif.

Home favourite Jessica Pegula has made quick work of Italy's Camila Giorgi to win her maiden WTA title at the Washington Open.

"I've always played so well here", Pegula said afterward.

"But, you know, the journey - it sounds cliche, the journey makes it all that much sweeter", added Pegula, who came back from hip surgery in 2017.

She had a 4-8 record and hadn't reached the quarterfinals anywhere this season until winning five consecutive matches at Washington's hard-court tournament. She then obtained a second break after another miscue from Giorgi, polishing off the set with a forehand victor.

Ranked world number 79, she broke Giorgi in the opening game of the match.

The second set was even more one-sided as Pegula marched to a 5-1 advantage before Giorgi, on the comeback trail after wrist and ankle injuries, won a second game.

"Kind of helped me realize to compete for every single point and not really take off any games, take off any points", she said, "and just keep that same mindset the whole time".

Russia's 10th-ranked Daniil Medvedev faces Australia's 52nd-ranked Nick Kyrgios in the later ATP final.
