"I don't know what was going to be said in the speech. At least my speech, I wasn't going to say anything. I didn't know about the whole situation before because I'm not on Twitter," said Gauff.
"You can kind of see us talking on the podium. That's when I found out. I think for the most part, yeah, I don't think it was a great decision. I expressed that afterwards. They apologized."
While Pegula joked that it made everything better but said she received a letter of apology.
"No, but they sent me an apology letter. The letter made everything okay (smiling)."
