Pegula reaches WTA Finals

CANCÚN (AFP) – Jessica Pegula beat Coco Gauff on Saturday to reach the WTA Finals title match but continuing weather woes saw Aryna Sabalenka’s clash with Iga Swiatek suspended by rain.

World number one Sabalenka and number two Swiatek had played just three games when rain blew in, halting a match between players fighting for the year-end number one ranking.

Pegula shook off a late rain delay and windy conditions to dispatch US Open champion Gauff, her doubles partner, in an hour.

“I executed what I wanted to do really well,” Pegula said. “In the windy conditions, I think it worked even better.”
