Giorgi took the lead in the first set by 3-2 but then Jessica Pegula took the next three games in a row as the Italian player made many unforced errors.
The second set was even more of an easy win for Jessica Pegula, despite making a comeback form injuries of wrist and ankles.

Pegula, who has been working with the former coach of Venus Williams David Witt, said, “It is extremely gratifying for me. This is the work you do to win the tournaments. It might sound cliché but this journey is the thing that makes the win sweeter. However, this week, it felt different for the finals, I felt as if I was ready for it. I was like, “you are going to go out there and you are going to win.”
She has become the second-ever American tennis player to have won the Citi Open title since Sloane Stephens who won the title back in 2015.
