Gauff & Pegula Set To Team Up For Doubles At Wimbledon Prior To Olympics

Gauff & Pegula Set To Team Up For Doubles At Wimbledon Prior To Olympics

by Zachary Wimer

Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula will play together at the 2024 Wimbledon Championships, which may be their last Grand Slam together.

The American duo will likely want to practice for the Olympic Games during the grass-court major. Gauff and Pegula have played many events together in the past few years because they've been doubles partners for a while.

They haven't played much this year as they started focusing on their respective singles careers, and Pegula's injury issues also prevented them from teaming up, but with the Olympic Games this year, there is an incentive to play together.

Still, in 2024, they have only played five matches together so far. Their first event together was the Indian Wells Open, where they won two matches and lost one.

Their next event was the Miami Open, where they lost in the opening round easily. One reason for not playing together a lot was that the experienced American missed the past few weeks due to injuries, which forced Gauff to play with other players. She won the Roland Garros, with Katerina Siniakova confirming her good form.

The American duo's return to playing doubles this week in Berlin didn't go well, as they lost already in their first match to Siniakova, with whom Gauff won the French Open, and Linda Noskova, so they need more time together.

Neither has forgotten how to play doubles, but there is some chemistry to be developed ahead of the Olympics, and that's likely also why they will play at Wimbledon together. The pairing's appearance on the women's doubles entry list for the event confirmed this.

Gauff has played more doubles matches than Pegula, with a 14-5 record overall. Pegula has played only 10 doubles matches so far and has a 5-5 record in 2024, and they will both want to improve those records.
