Re: 2017 Season Chat Thread

After delighting all her fans and the island of Puerto Rico by going 6 and 0 at the 2016 Rio Olympics, singles Gold Medalist Monica Puig ended 2016 with a lackluster 4 and 5 record. She begins the 2017 season ranked 32nd in the World and kicked off her tournament play in Brisbane, Australia. We wish her the best of luck for a successful and healthy season.

May she add more trophies to her case and raise her CH ranking of 27!






Pica sadly lost her first match of 2017.

Here's the WTA article with video highlights:
News | WTA Tennis English

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Re: 2017 Season Chat Thread

Monica was supposed to play Svitolina again in Sydney R1 before the latter had to withdraw due to illness . Now Monica plays Caroline Wozniacki who took Svitolina's spot in the draw . Can't say it's really much better, but good luck Monica! Be your aggressive , consistant self, and be ready to run a lot and fght hard! You can do it ! Putintseva awaiting in R2 and Vinci/Sakkari/Makarova/Strycova in QF looks like there's a possibility to go far if Monica finds the magic she had there last year Let's wish for the best !

Re: 2017 Season Chat Thread

Caroline will be just as tough of a match for Pica, but the good part is at least it'll be a different player & style so that helps towards AUS OPEN preparation.

Re: 2017 Season Chat Thread

Playing HYPER aggressive tennis, Pica fell to Woz in 3 sets.

Some of the stats (Aces, Winners) are encouraging, however the DF's and UE's were also just as numerous. I hope that she just needed to get a match like this out of her system where to pushed as hard/fast as she could and now she can work (practice courts) on dialing it back to a good level that allows for lower free points towards the opponent.

Up Next ... Australian Open!

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.

Re: 2017 Season Chat Thread

Monica took part in the Blue Room (Twitter) at the AO after her 1R win. She looked great and happy and comfortable with her form. check it out ... I think if you search on Twitter for #askmonicap or AO Blue Room, you'll find a recording of that series.
