The second set was even more one-sided as Pegula marched to a 5-1 advantage before Giorgi, on the comeback trail after wrist and ankle injuries, won a second game.
Pegula, the daughter of the owners of the National Football League's Buffalo Bills and National Hockey League's Buffalo Sabres, closed out the match with a stunning service winner and sank to her knees in celebration.
She won 81% of her first serves and saved the only break point she faced against the former Wimbledon quarter-finalist.
“I’ve always played so well here,” Pegula told the crowd afterwards.
“So I’m so happy I can get my first title here.”
