Re: Rio 2016 Gold Medal Match: Monica Puig (PUR) def. [2]Angelique Kerber (GER) 64 46

Beating the current RG championesse, a two time Wimbledon champ AND the current AO winner in a row in this way is unbelieveable.
ALL BIG CONGRATULATIONS to the new Olympic Gold Medalist, first of her country. :bowdown:
This tournament she wanted to win from the start of 2016 it seems.

She painted the lines every time. Angie was without chance to resist this permanent pressure (and all the netcords in 1st and 2nd set). The Puerto Rican was on a mission.for her country.
But Angie, you gave your best, it's the silver medal though. My deepest respect for the fight you put into this highest quality match.

Again congrats both ladies for this performance! :yeah:
