Coco Gauff & Jessica Pegula are OUT of the US Open women’s doubles tournament in the first round

In what is arguably the biggest surprise of the US Open yet, Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula have been eliminated from the women’s doubles competition in the first round.

The pair lost to Canadian and last year second place in the women’s singles, Leylah Fernandez and her playing partner Australian Daria Saville 3-6, 7-5, 6-7 and lost 10-5 in the tiebreak of the last set.

Gauff is the No. 1 ranked doubles player in the world and, when paired with Pegula, the second best women’s doubles team in the world.

The American pair started the match trading back and forth and survived a breakpoint to win the fifth game.

In the sixth game, Gauff and Pegula broke the service of the other pair to lead 4-2 and never looked back, winning the set 6-3.

This is a story in development. More to follow.
