I bad luck Unfortunately, Jessica Pegula has a setback right before the Australian Open.

Another bad thing that happened to Jessica Pegula before the Australian Open is that she had to pull out of her quarterfinal match at the Adelaide International because she had a Gastrointestinal Illness (GI).

Pegula, who was ranked No. 2, was set to play Daria Kasatkina, who is ranked No. 15, in the semifinals of Adelaide on Friday. That match didn’t happen, though, because the American was sick with a stomach bug.

GI diseases are any problems with the throat, stomach, intestines, or other parts of the digestive system. Acute, short-term illnesses, which some people call “stomach bugs,” may also be diagnosed.

After Pegula pulled out of the Adelaide final, Kasatkina was able to go without paying. After hearing the news about Pegula, Kasatkina went on X to wish her friend a speedy recovery before the Australian Open.

A bad thing happens to Pegula before the Australian Open

Pegula, who is ranked fifth in the world, had a GI problem just two days before the Australian Open. This was not the best thing that could have happened to her. For some reason, this is not the first time that Pegula has had a stumble right before a Grand Slam.

Pegula got sick at her first meal in Paris after getting there for the 2023 French Open. Pegula wasn’t able to fully practise or get ready for the French Open for the next couple of days.

Pegula was still able to play in the French Open. But it was clear that Pegula wasn’t at her best in Paris because she lost to Elise Mertens 1-6 3-6 in the third round, ending her run.

Once more, Pegula is having trouble right before the start of a Grand Slam.

She found out on Thursday that her first round match at the Australian Open would be against qualifier world No. 182 Rebecca Marino. We don’t yet know if Pegula’s GI sickness from Adelaide will affect her at the Australian Open or how much.
