Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

I havent seen here playing in an upcoming tournament. I wonder if she'll play in cincinnati. I find it hard to believe she'll play the U.S. Open without a tuneup in hardcourts. Any updates?

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Looking at the Calendar, I'm thinking QUALIES at Cinci or Texas Tennis Open would be her only shot at competitive match-play prior to the US Open. I think her ranking should allow her entry into the Singles Qualification draw.

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: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Indeed. I'm going to see who else is coming up the ranks of Puerto Rico. I saw on the wta rankings, there are players younger than Monica who are playing. It's exciting times to be a boricua!!

I hope Monica is training well. I hope to see her in the qualifying tournaments. Are there new youtube videos of her matches?

If she plays USO Qualies, I'm sure we'll see some more footage of her matches.

Hoping she has a good September!

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Puig will play Sharon Fichman of Canada in 1Q at the USO. Then either the 2nd seed Chan or Ferrer-Suarez.

...winnable matches. Hoping for the best!!!

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Jool, did you get to see the match?

I'm wondering why she wasn't able to take that third set?

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Very very very bummed about that result. I wonder if she's going to stick to hardcourts or if she'll play clay ITF's?

...gotta do some research and see how much she was to defend the rest of the year. Hopefully she's got enough resources to compete in the early-year-ITF tournaments and then Aussie Qualifiers.
