Jessica Pegula, daughter of Bills’ owners, advances in Australian Open

Mike Florio, Charean Williams and Myles Simmons take turns drafting the teams they want to see sign J.J. Watt, including a family reunion, a return to Watt’s college roots and an AFC South rival.

Jessica Pegula, the daughter of Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula, has advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open.

Pegula defeated Kristina Mladenovic 6-2, 6-1. This is the furthest the 26-year-old Pegula has ever advanced in a Grand Slam tournament.

Although Pegula is not involved in the family business, she said this week that she is a big enough football fan that she altered her practice schedule in Australia to watch the Super Bowl. She was rooting for the Buccaneers because her fiancé is friends with Rob Gronkowski.

Pegula faces Donna Vekić in the quarterfinals.
