BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Jessica Pegula—the 26th-ranked women’s tennis player in the world and daughter of Bills and Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula—is one of many New Yorkers headed to the Olympics with Team USA.

Pegula was named to the Olympic team Thursday, along with Jennifer Brady (No. 15), Coco Gauff (No. 23), Alison Riske (No. 29), Nicole Melichar (No. 9 in doubles), and Bethanie Mattek-Sands (No. 15 in doubles).

The Olympic selection is the latest highlight in a career year for Pegula, who was ranked 62nd worldwide at the end of 2020. Pegula reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in April, marking her best finish in a Grand Slam event. She also reached the Round of 32 at the French Open last month and beat world No. 2 Naomi Osaka in the Italian Open in May.

The top-ranked American singles players, Sofia Kenin (No. 6) and Serena Williams (No. 8), opted not to play in the Olympics.

Pegula is not the only New Yorker headed to the Olympics. Check out the list below, which also features people from nearby Massachusetts and Vermont:
