Jessica Pegula has ripped a British newspaper after a story published seemingly put into question her determination to compete for the biggest titles because of her status in the United States. Pegula, ranked at No 4 in the world, is the daughter of Terry and Kim Pegula, who own NFL’s Buffalo Bills and NHL’s Buffalo Sabres.

The Pegula family is one of the wealthiest in the United States but Jessica made a name for herself in tennis as for some time now she has been among the top players in the world. At Wimbledon, 29-year-old Pegula made her sixth Grand Slam quarterfinal – but for the sixth time ended on the losing side.

The Times then published a story titled: “Six quarter-finals, six defeats: Jessica Pegula needs dynamic that family billions can’t buy.”

Pegula responds: I won’t be buying this trash article

“I’ll tell you what I won’t buy is this [trash] article,” Pegula wrote on Twitter.

Pegula appeared to be cruising toward a three-set win over Marketa Vondrousova but then the match took a sudden turn.

In the third set, Pegula had a 4-1 lead and a break point to go 5-1 up. But then, Vondrousova stunningly won the next five games to complete a 6-4 2-6 6-4 win over Pegula. After falling to 0-6 in her Grand Slam quarterfinals, Pegula refused to be negative.“It’s better than not putting myself in those positions, which I have to keep reminding myself, even when I don’t really want to listen to the good side of things.

Yeah, I mean, I’ll just keep working. There’s not like a clear answer for everything, right, to prove that’s going to make me say, Yes, for sure if I do this, I’m going to win a Grand Slam, make semis, make finals, whatever it is.

There’s nothing like that. I just have to keep telling myself to put myself in good positions, keep getting better and working on things,” Pegula said.
