Jessica Pegula takes on Marketa Vondrousova in a Wimbledon quarter-final on today that represents a first for both players. The 29-year-old fourth seed had never made it beyond the third round at the All England Club before 2023, while her unseeded Czech rival had always fallen before the second round. Both players have the skills to pay the grass court bills, which should make this a fascinating contest.
Wimbledon is airing for FREE in some countries. But don't worry if you're on holiday while it's on because you can watch Pegula vs Vondrousova live streams from anywhere with a VPN.
In reaching the Wimbledon quarter-finals, Jessica Pegula has now completed the last-eight set at the four grand slams. Yet the American fourth seed has never made it beyond this stage in any of her previous major attempts and she will be desperate to end her hex as one of women's tennis' bridesmaids.
Daughter of Terry Pegula, owner of NFL franchise the Buffalo Bills, the 29-year-old has the game to thrive on grass. Though not possessing big weapons, Pegula is a fine redistributer of her opponent's power and the low net clearance of her ground strokes means her skiddy shots can cause difficulties on low-bouncing surfaces like grass. The world doubles number two, she has an all-round game that's made for SW19.
Marketa Vondrousova, meanwhile, is your typical leftie. The Czech has a decent swinging serve out to the advantage court and a tricksy game full of deft drop shots and slices that make it hard to establish any kind of rhythm against her.
The 24-year-old has the greater grand slam grade, having reached the French Open final in 2019, losing to Ash Barty in straight sets as a teenager. Now working her way back to her top form after a couple of years' struggles on tour, Vondrousova has already beaten three seeds – Donna Vekic, Veronika Kudermetova and Marie Bouzkova – en route to her first Wimbledon quarter-final and will have plenty of confidence that she can add Pegula to that list.
This will be the first meeting between Pegula and Vondrousova and it promises to be a fascinating clash of styles. Make sure to catch all the Wimbledon action by tuning into a Pegula vs Vondrousova live stream. Scroll down for details.
