It was August 30, 2011, when Pegula and Townsend were granted a wildcard into the US Open doubles tournament. A defeat by Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova ended their hopes in the women’s team competition.
To qualify for the main draw at Indian Wells in 2012, Pegula was given a wildcard to the qualifying draw and stunned higher ranked players Bojana Jovanovski and Paulina Ormaechea by defeating them in three sets.
