Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

I don't mind the loss, it keeps her grounded and working on fundamentals rather than buying into the hype (like GM tried) and forgetting about the basics that brought her to this point. Having that said, she can't lose in QR1 at French or USO or the Top 50 goal gets way harder.

Let the bandwagoners go away, and the true fans will stick around remain level headed and watch Monica rise steadily into stardom.

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

my guess is she won't even have to qualify for the next Slams
right now her ranking is high enough to enter directly

anyway her time will come
hopefully a good showing in Paris will follow this 'disappointment'

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

It's really a toss-up at this point, with her ranking in the 100's she was 2nd Seed in the Qualies. She lost 39 points with her QR1 loss, so she is only up 40 points compared to last year this time and she's got 116 or so point to defend before the French Open EL is finalized.

She's got the ability to do it tho, she had 5 1R (or QR1) losses in the Spring 2012, so that's 5 tournaments where she can come ahead points wise.

Fingers Crossed!

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

I'm so sad with this result

I have watched a lot of tennis in my life, and I have watched all of them... from Steffi Graf to Serena Williams. I have been watching Monica since she was 14 years old. Its normal that people who just saw her for the first time last week, doubt now about your potential.

Trust me, she won't be an average top 20 player. Knowing her character, thats unacceptable for her. She wakes up everyday with the obsession of being the best in the world. She don't care about anything else, but tennis.

In 3-4 years, she will be the number 1 player in the world.

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

I hate it that Monica lost, but maybe it was for the best. Like charmedRic said, she needs to stay grounded and not get caught up in the hype.

Monica will bounce back! Keep your head up! Still love you, Monica!

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Monica But like most people have been saying... She's sooo young and has had so much success over the last 6 months that maybe this loss will be good for her in the long run. I'm sure she'll train extra hard over the next couple weeks to better prepare herself for her upcoming tourneys, starting with Paris

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

No problem with her being grounded. Monica looked as down as I've seen a player after a match . Every loss hits her hard. Obviously losing 1R of qualifying for GS is gonna sting.
Monica is a great fighter. It sucks her opponent got thrashed next round.

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Pica hasn't tweeted in 4 days.

I'm hoping she's just focused on herself.

Hi guys
I'm new here, but once I saw Monica in France. She played awesome tennis. I support her
She looked pretty tall to me too. Hopefully she will have good results this year.
