Brisbane R2: [4] Angelique Kerber d. [Q] Monica Puig 3-6 6-4 7-6(7)

Amazing match from Puig. Kerber was mentally all over the place. She even at one point, hit a drop shot, started to adjust her hat and stayed still, Puig then hit the reply shot right back to her, and she still netted it Kerber's second serve was also a mess. Some random calls about foot faults too.

Kerber was only good in the last set, and even still struggled. Interesting to see how far she'll go with the draw being so weak. Unlucky for Puig, she just ran out of gas in the TB. Showed when she missed that FH at 5-5.

W/UE ratio: 44/38 for Puig, 45/44 for Kerber.

Brisbane R2: Kerber d. Puig 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(7)

PICA WAS SO CLOSE. Led 5-3 in the tiebreak and had an easy air ball at the net that she missed at 5-5. Saved 2 match points in the tiebreak before finally giving in. Impressive effort though, Kerber really had no business winning this match. Congrats Angie, better step up in the next round.

Re: Brisbane R2: Kerber d. Puig 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(7)

Good crowd! Matching outfits. Monica can fill out an outfit well!

Angelique had to fight hard because her serve was letting her down in the 2nd set. She did.

Match was suspended after 2nd set due to heat. 87F.

Monica started the 3rd serving well. Monica cut into Angelique's 2nd serve well.

Monica made DF to give away the break 4-3.

Monica jumped out to a 40-0 lead serving 4-4. Angelique with great poise hitting droppers in the 5-6 game.

Kerber made too many DFs.

You could see the determination in Monica's face!

Monica missed an easy volley at 5-5 in the breaker.

Next is Pavlyuchenkova. Good luck!

Spectacular tennis from Puig but she needs to work on her attitude asap. Cringeworthy behavior at times, dial it down for crying out loud.

This Puig has a bright future. If only she didn't net that drive volley even when Kerber had given up on that point.

This was Monica's match to win. If she keeps playing like that she will go far. Kerber has the most annoying obnoxious on court attitude ever. Nasty bitch. Thinks she's entitled to some shit. Bitch bye.

Re: Brisbane R2: Kerber d. Puig 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(7)

I was really impressed by Puig! She has a game really similar to Kerber with prettier groundies lol. That was a tough one to lose, but probably the best tennis match (competitive wise) of the year so far! She'll be really interesting to see!! Kerber is a bit disappointing so far this season. Her 1st tournament of the year is quite complicated lol, hopefully she'll find her range soon or else it will be a pretty tough year for her.

Well done Angie! Still lots of room to improve.

Monica played so well!!! Incredible tennis, hope the loss doesn't get to her too much. She for sure won fans

Puig is crying

Monica is going to be a huge player!!! that is all.
Felt so bad for her at the end, she was crying...she has visions of McHale about her
