American Jessica Pegula defeated Nuria Parizas Diaz 7: 6,6, 2: XNUMX and advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open. Pegula in the next round will try to equalize the biggest success in his career, that is the placement in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, which he achieved last year.

She was in the spotlight last year when she defeated Victoria Azarenka, Samantha Stosur, Kristina Mladenovic and Elina Svitolina in Melbourne before losing to Jennifer Brady, who reached the final.

But the money Pegula earns from tennis is a trifle because one by one it will inherit billions of dollars. Namely, her father is Terry Pegula, who earned more than four billion dollars from the sale of natural gas.

Terry Pegula bought the NFL Buffalo Bills in 2014, defeating Donald Trump, who was also interested in buying the club. Terry also owns the NHL team Buffalo Cybers, and his wife Kim is a minority shareholder.
Jessica is currently ranked 18th in the rankings and that is her best ranking.

Unlike Pegula who wins in Melbourne, the real surprise is the elimination of the trophy defender Naomi Osaka. She was defeated by Amanda Anisimova in three sets with 4: 6,6: 3,7: 6.
