Latest on US Open: Daughter of Bills, Sabres owners wins
NEW YORK (AP) --- The latest on the U.S. Open (all times local):
The Buffalo Bills and Sabres would love some big wins like this once their
Jessica Pegula, the daughter of the owners of those pro sports franchises, won
in her Grand Slam debut Monday, upsetting French Open quarterfinalist Alison
Van Uytvanck in straight sets, 7-5, 6-3.
The 21-year-old Pegula is ranked 260th and had to advance through qualifying to
make the field. She clinched her spot in the main draw by beating Melanie
Oudin, the darling of the 2009 U.S. Open as a 17-year-old quarterfinalist.
Van Uytvanck, also 21, is ranked 55th but is now 1-5 in tour-level matches
since her run at Roland Garros.
