First all American team to reach World No.1 since 2012 as Gauff and Pegula ascend Women's Doubles rankings after US Open

America’s duo of Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula is set to become the new doubles world number one.

They will be the first all-American duo to reach the top rank in the doubles WTA rankings since 2012 after their heroics in the US Open.

They reached the quarterfinal of the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year and were defeated by Taiwan’s WangXinyu and China’s Hsieh Su-wei with a score of 7-6, 3-6, 6-4.

While Pegula has had a below-par singles category outing in the mega-event, Gauff is being on an impressive run.

The former was surprisingly knocked out from the round of 16 after losing to fellow American Madison Keys in straight sets with a score of 6-1, 6-3.

On the other hand, Gauff qualified for the final of the US Open for the first time in her career after beating Czech Republic’s Karolina Muchova in the last four with a score of 6-4, 7-5.

She will face the newly-crowned world number one Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka in the final of the competition on Saturday.

The 25-year-old defeated Keys in the semifinal in a stunning manner despite not winning a game in the first set with a score of 0-6, 7-6, 7-6.
