"She keeps me young" – Coco Gauff’s doubles partner Jessica Pegula on teaming up with the teenager
Speaking about her partnership with the decade-younger Gauff, Pegula said that the pair were always confident that they would make a good team. She also revealed that they have great camaraderie and that they push each other to do better.
"We always felt like we could be a good team. I think our relationship has always been great. We live pretty close to each other. Our teams are pretty close. We're very friendly, always joking, messing around. On the road, that can be really nice to have, especially when you are traveling every single week," Jessica Pegula noted in a press conference at WTA Finals.
"Since we're playing a lot of the same tournaments, it's always nice to have that camaraderie, you know, week to week. I think our relationship has just grown obviously from playing a lot together and being around each other in that way. I think we learn from each other as well, and that's always kind of pushing us to get better. It seems like it because our rankings just keep moving up together simultaneously," she added.
Pegula further revealed that the 18-year-old had youthfulness about her and her energy helped her in staying young.
"I would say she has, like, really good energy. You know, like a lot of first-pumping, jumping around. Her athleticism and the youthfulness about her. She's very giggly. She laughs a lot. She's always kind of messing around." she expressed.
"I think just having that kind of energy, especially when we're playing doubles, has kind of taught me to kind of do that more in my singles game since I'm pretty laid back, but I think at times I've picked up little things from that. So, yeah, I don't know, she keeps me young (laughing)," she concluded.
