Wow Interesting news

I just heard that Michael Joyce is working with a young girl named Jessie Pegula. Any info on her? Her father is billionaire Buffalo Sabres owner Terrance Pegula. Is she good or do you think hes just getting paid lots of money?

Re: Wow Interesting news

I saw Keys play once and wasn't impressed..but she's still really young isn't she? Hopefully she improves

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.

Re: Wow Interesting news

She recently turned 17 and so far she hasn't really done anything too impressive. Here's her WTA and ITF Juniors pages:

http://www.wtatennis.com/page/Player...~16003,00.html

http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/pla...ayer=100119954

Her current WTA ranking is #557 and her current ITF Juniors ranking is #63. Those are also her peak rankings for both, so she does seem to be moving up at least, but she's still only the #9 American junior and there are 5 younger American juniors who are ranked higher than her, including the above-mentioned Madison Keys. So she's basically under-performing her peers at the moment.

eh..don't think so. She defeated Stephens and Min at the National last year. Of course, WTA and ITF is a different matter.

Re: Wow Interesting news

Jessica is a good player, so Madison.
No doubt they will as soon as possible reach Top 100

Re: Wow Interesting news

Kimberley Couts ( who is lovely ) is a bit of a challenger equivalent of a brick wall so if Pegula was able to beat her today 6-0 6-0 then she must have something.

Re: Wow Interesting news

For those who say Keys isn't good, she won a MD WTA match at 14 a G1 junior title at 13... she's got the game. It might take a bit longer to develop since she's such a big hitter, but she only turned 16 last month and is really ahead of her peers.

But to Pegula, the girl is good. And she doesn't play nearly as much junior tennis as her peers, thus her lower ranking. She is really good on clay, reaching a GA final last year on clay and a 25k final as a qualifier this year on green clay. She has kind of gone under the radar if you ask me, but that may be good for her. I hope Joyce takes her game to a new level.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: Wow Interesting news

Pegula been doing really well. Got to quarterfinals and lost to Falconi 7 6 in the third in Indian Harbour. She had some great wins beat El Tabak and than Babos who was top junior last year. Maybe America does have some hope. Glad shes working with Joyce and not the usta!!!!!!
