Well ladies and gents, let me know your opinion. Here's the video of the last games (3rd set). I liked 90% of what I saw, but there are e or two things that she still needs to improve....probably more experience is all she needs.

one thing I observed and really liked was how much this girl wants to win...I've observed a couple of young guns and a minority behaves like that....reminds me of Ryan Harrison and Caroline Woz a couole of years before.

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

On a side and funny note, it was strange to see two players wearing the same clothes. Whats up with that, Addidas?

Also, did u guys notice Alain, her coach? Was him more nervous than her? I think hes done a great job, anyway.

I hope once the initially pain of the loss fades, that she is heartened by the big picture. She's announced herself as a talent and as a presence to be reckoned.

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Loved the way she played and fought for the match against Kerber, she deserved to win. She needs more experience to close this kind of matches in the near future. She is a new rising star.

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

well she sure does seem to have a pretty strong personnality
I like how she said graduating was important for her..and maybe that's why she 'only' blossomed at the very end of last year whereas I could see a lot of potential from Monica for quite some time now
also, she seems very confident , competitive , setting high goals..

Really wish her the best for 2013

Good luck at AO , Pica, show them all a new star has come to WTA Tour !

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

QR1 versus Qiang Wang
QR2 versus Hon/Solovieva
QR3 versus Savinykh/Larriere/Burnett/An.Rodionova

...could get interesting on that final Q round.

She plays her QR1 today around around 9p or 10p EST based on how long the other AM matches last.

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.
