Jessica Pegula, whose parents own the Bills and Sabres, pulled off one of the Australian Open’s biggest upsets on Sunday.
The 26-year-old, ranked No. 61, beat No. 5 seeded Elina Svitolina, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, in the fourth round.
This was Pegula’s best-ever showing at a major, and it included a first-round win over two-time tournament champion Victoria Azarenka. The American advanced to face the winner of No. 22 Jennifer Brady and No. 28 Donna Vekic in the quarterfinals.
Pegula parents, Terry and Kim Pegula, have owned both Buffalo sports franchises since 2014.
