3) Win her first WTA Title and Win at least 3 ITF titles.

My prediction is that Monica will be top 75 before the clay season
begins in May, and top 50 before the US Open in September.

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

A top 50 in a year time is doable if Monica keeps this great form she's been in lately. If she won't, then a top 70-80 would be alright for me.
She's able to win some international title, but still not very probable.

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Monica, good luck in Ankara, Brisbane, and AO. Hope that you start the new season as you finish the previous one. We will be following your performance with great interest.

Like your new nick name "PICA" and its meaning!!!

Pica for PicaPiedra, speaking about the ethics/dedication you need on court.

Pica for Picardia, which is all about having the right attitude.

Monica has played the Quali at Indian Wells in 2011 and 2012. If the same holds for this season, the Quali at Indian Wells will be at the same date as the new WTA tournament in Brazil. Let's see what happens...

Good luck to her in all the tournaments that she plays this season to see her ranking for 2013 reach her goals...

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

She may play Indian Wells, but I was just thinking she may play closer to home. Wherever she plays, Go MONICA!!
