Pegula is going places. Just wait. She is extremely talented and a lot of potential. Her father owns the NHL team (Buffalo Sabres)

Re: Is Michael Joyce coaching anyone?

She is from Buffalo originally (hence her dad owns the NHL team there ), but she trains in Florida now I'm pretty sure. Her dad actually founded a gas drilling company that he ended up selling for almost $5 billion! She never played much juniors, but she has had good results in USTA pro circuit events (especially on clay). Currently ranked around 350.

Re: Is Michael Joyce coaching anyone?

Pegula pretty much said she'll go pro soon. She had the financial support and results to do it. Hope Joyce can gether to be more consistent. She has LOADS of potential from what I've seen. Reminds me a lot of Tamira Paszek.

With all that money, she must have her own courts.

Michale is smart, he want to make big bucks.
The dad probably promised him a fat contract if he makes his daughter a success

Re: Is Michael Joyce coaching anyone?

Make what you will of this, but it is hard to judge her game here.
Bad camera work, tight camera close-up on her, they don't even show where her ball land.

This was just May 6 of this year.

Rich tennis kid story. Kind of reminds me of Ernest Gulbis story.

She's the same size as a Bartoli who eats what she wants but does no exercise...
And she makes Pavlyuchenkova make look fit.

This. Love how people resort to picking on a teenage girl here. Give me a fucking break. Also you all should consider that sometimes people look bigger on camera than they really are. I've seen Marion Bartoli at two different tournaments and she looks MUCH fitter and leaner in person than she does on TV. People here give her WAY too much crap.
