Logic is not too reliable in the WTA. I hope you are right though!

You are absolutely right. With all the top of the line players it is very unlikely to see another teenage phenom like the Williams sisters, Hingis, etcetera, according to Monica's first coach, VOS. Very hard for Monica to have a good shot at number 1. It just may be the big bucks that are now available.

I don´t think Kerber underestimated Monica either. Maybe some of her fans thought it was in the bag, but certainly not me. Those courts in Rio were perfect for Monica. Now Angie gets to #1 in New York and everything is perfect.

I am sorry about my sarcasm. What I meant was that Kerber seemed to me to be impressed by the way Monica was playing back in Brisbane 2013, which I thought was a compliment. But then again, I have a hard time understanding women's tennis.

Patrick has been a Monica fan all this time too. You can see that in the GM section.

I am cool with Kerber getting to number 1 in NY. Kerber doesn't need to win the tournament in order to get to #1

Re: OLYMPIC CHAMPION Monica Puig

On Monica Puig:

Garbine Muguruza: "It's an incredible achievement. When I played against her, I'd never seen her play at such a high level. When I ended the match, I thought it was tough for me, but she played very well and deserved to win the gold, the way she played."


Simona Halep: "I watched everything. In gymnastics, Simone [Biles] is whoah, incredible. I also watched Phelps. I know everything now. I watched the tennis final and Monica Puig played so well; she was there to win. I saw what she was saying on Twitter - I'm more into Twitter lately - how she was very motivated and confident. It was only shocking because of the ranking, but she plays well."

Re: OLYMPIC CHAMPION Monica Puig

I wake up every day and I can't believe it. She did it!! I knew she had the potential since she started playing professionally but I've always wondered when will she break through? I thought she would have a career maybe like Lucie Safarova or Li Na who found success late in her career because mentally it took her time to develop. But she proved me wrong and at 22 years old she has accomplished something so big that many tennis players who have grand slams would wish they could have that medal. I'm still shocked.
