American Pegula said Russian Samsonova was in an unfair position at the Montreal tournament

American tennis player Jessica Pegula said that the Russian Ludmila Samsonova was in an unfair position at the WTA 1000 category tournament finals in Montreal, Canada.

On Sunday, Samsonova was beaten by Pegula in the final of the tournament in Montreal – 1:6, 0:6. The athlete played the second match of the day, as the semi-final against Kazakhstan representative Elena Rybakina was postponed due to rain.

– I feel good! I know Samsonova was not in the best physical shape, but for my part, I had a perfect game. I made almost no unforced errors. I knew I could play freely, and each time I tried to break, to keep my serve as long as possible until I won. It was a good day.

Lyudmila had a crazy schedule. She had to play twice a day. She had many meetings in a short time. It’s not ideal. But we couldn’t do anything. It’s because of the weather.

It’s difficult when you know you’re in an unfair position. Samsonova is a great player. Either way, she had a great week and made the most of it, so I’m sure she’s happy. But playing against a player under such circumstances is unpleasant,” Pegula told a press conference.
