Pegula encountered significant difficulty with her serve during the subsequent game, resulting in a forehand shot that was hit too long. This mistake granted Vondrousova a crucial break, which she capitalized on by winning her fifth consecutive game and ultimately securing the victory.
The player concluded the match with seven aces, while her opponent, Pegula, did not score any authorities. Additionally, she recorded 24 winners but also committed 35 unforced errors.
