Following the match, Pegula paid tribute to herself and Jabeur explaining how they have come a long way from a few years ago when they were both ranked in the 70s. She said:
"I wanna say congrats to Ons. You've been in a lot of finals, a lot of close matches. I'm sad you've pulled it off against me today but you deserved it you've worked really hard."
"I think for both of us these last two weeks proved a lot. We've come a long way from a few years ago. We were 75 and 76, right next to each other. That's pretty amazing."
