Pegula received a wildcard to the Indian Wells qualifying round in March 2012. She shocked top-ranked players Bojana Jovanovski and Paula Ormaechea to advance to the main draw, where she was defeated in three sets by Magdaléna Rybáriková.
Pegula qualified for the US Open and then played in her first major singles match there. She won over Margarita Gasparyan, Shuko Aoyama, and Melanie Oudin to get to the main draw, where she overcame Alison Van Uytvanck in the opening round.
In September of this year, as a qualifier for the Tournoi de Québec, Pegula made it to her first WTA singles final. She defeated Kristna Plková, Ons Jabeur, second-seeded Petra Marti, and fifth-seeded Sofia Kenin en route to the championship round, where she was defeated in straight sets by eighth-seeded Pauline Parmentier. This helped her end the year inside the top 125 and pushed her position back inside the top 200.
Pegula spent the majority of the year competing on the ITF Circuit until making her first-ever top-100 appearance in February. As a result, she was able to compete in a number of major WTA Tour events, including those in Indian Wells and Miami.
In Charleston, where she defeated No. 12 in the world Anastasija Sevastova on her way to the third round, she had her finest performance throughout the early clay court season. She was able to initially enter the top 75 thanks to this.
She also made her debut in the main draw of a Grand Slam competition that wasn't the US Open. Pegula won against CiCi Bellis in the opening round of the Auckland Open to begin her tennis season in 2020.
To get to the semifinals, she won two further matches in straight sets against Tamara Zidanek and Alizé Cornet.
In order to reach her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, where she lost to eventual runner-up Jennifer Brady, Pegula defeated former Australian Open champion and 12th seed Victoria Azarenka, Kristina Mladenovic, former US Open champion Samantha Stosur, and fifth seed Elina Svitolina.
Pegula began her campaign in Melbourne, where she fell to Irina-Camelia Begu in the opening round of the singles competition but won her first WTA doubles championship with Asia Muhammad by defeating Jasmine Paolini and Sara Errani, who had previously held the doubles world No. 1 ranking, in the final. She was defeated by Caroline Garcia in Sydney's opening round.
She beat Anhelina Kalinina, Bernarda Pera, Nuria Párrizas Dáz, and fifth seed Maria Sakkari in the Australian Open to get to her second straight quarterfinal at this major.
In Doha, she and Coco Gauff defeated third seeds Elise Mertens and Veronika Kudermetova to win their second doubles championship (and first at the WTA 1000 level). As a consequence, on February 28, 2022, she moved up to No. 29 in the doubles rankings.
Pegula only managed one set in three matches when making her WTA Finals debut, losing all of her matches in the group round. She defeated Yulia Putintseva, Jasmine Paolini, and seventh seed Coco Gauff in Montreal to get to her third consecutive Canadian Open quarterfinal.
Pegula played in the United Cup's first competition to start her season. Petra Kvitová won her initial match in Group C, but she recovered to overcome Laura Siegmund.
Pegula was one of the favorites to win the Australian Open after her victory over Witek and her consistency during the 2022 season.
