Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

MORGAN, MERIEL (Meriel E Morgan)
Great Britain
[Active 1949-1959]

In 8 attempts at qualifying for Wimbledon she came through twice; losing her opening match both times (1952 and 1957).

Could she be related to Janet and Laura Morgan? Very unlikely.

She is not related to Janet Morgan as Janet Morgan's mother was Fairbank and there is no Meriel Morgan with mother Fairbank on ancestry.co.uk.

There is a Meriel E. Morgan born in Q2 1921 in LLanelly, Wales and she was married to Jack Walters in Q4 1947 in LLanelly. Is this the tennis player? The only problem with this identification is out tennis player is a Miss Morgan. Only a quick divorce or widowhood would explain the reversion to her maiden name. For now this identification remains likely but unproven.

PUIG, MONICA (Mónica Puig Marchán)
Puerto Rico
Born 27 September 1993 in Hato Rey, San Juan, Puerto Rico
Height: 1.70 m (5 ft 7 in)
Plays: Right handed (two-handed backhand)
[Active 2009 to present]

A Star is Born Overnight

Ranked too low for a seeding at the 2016 Olympics, she proceeding to stun the sports world with upset wins over grand slam winners Garbiñe Muguruza, , Petra Kvitová, and finally Angelique Kerber in an exciting 3 set gold medal match.

This has made her a major sports star in Puerto Rico overnight. Puig, named after tennis star Monica Seles, is the first Puerto Rican female to win any medal and the first Puerto Rican of either gender to win a gold medal.

Gigi Fernandez had won an Olympic gold medal and several doubles slams in the 1980s and 90s, but she competed under the US flag.

It is unclear if Puig will be able to replicate her dream run. Her counterpunching game is backed up by good speed and a tenacious fighting spirit, but she lacks a weapon.
