You just need to visit East London this week – the O2 to be exact, where the world’s Top Ten tennis players are fighting it out to be delegated ‘the most elite’ – to understand that, with regards to tennis, it’s the Europeans – Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic – that are commanding the top spots.
Not even the once in the past all-powerful US is getting a look in nowadays. In any case, how about we move the concentrate southward for a minute, where Latin America is blasting with tennis potential and has a bigger number of players in the main 100 than the United States. You may be astonished to realize that Argentina is positioned third on the planet (imparted to Germany), for delivering more players in the main 100 (four) than whatever other nation. Indeed, even Colombia, with two players in the main hundred, beats the UK, which has the colossal Andy Murray. In any case, that is it. Not one more.
The current year’s US open highlighted Latino men and ladies from five unique nations. Dominican Republic’ s Victor Estrella Burgos battled a daring quarter last against Canada’s Raonic. Also, Monica Puig, the youthful Porta Rican player shocked every one of us with her triumph over Tereza Smitkova, the 4-time ITF singles champion and , on paper, way out of the youthful Puerto Rican’s class.
Also, this was not the first run through Monica has ousted one of the best. In 2013 at Wimbledon she won in straight sets (6-3 6-2) to fifth seeded Sarra Errani of Italy. This is all the more great thinking of it as was her first grass court competition as an expert and she was just 19.
Puig was given a tennis racket surprisingly by her mom at age 6, yet until the age of 14 she longed for turning into a vet or a pediatrician. Who might have thought only 5 years after the fact she’d be climbing the famously intense stepping stool of the world’s main 100 tennis rankings.
Indeed, even from the earliest starting point, Puig was loaded with astonishments. As a qualifier in the 2008 Costa Rica Bowl (Grade 3), she achieved the last, missing out to Eugenie Bouchard. Be that as it may, her genuine leap forward was in 2009 when she started contending in greater competitions. This finished in her triumphant her first duplicates title toward the end of 2009. From that point forward she has gone from quality to quality, and is at present number 61 in world rankings. What’s more, at just 21, despite everything she has far to go.
Prepared in Florida, Puig views herself as entirely Puerto Rican. ‘In my brain, soul, heart, body, everything, I am truly glad speaking to them, speaking to the nation. To anyone who asks, I am 100 percent Puerto Rican’.
Her prosperity is especially bringing about a tempest on a little island which, as far as game, has just perused the “b” segment of the lexicon. Boxing, ball and baseball rule. Tennis – a first class sport – is regularly unavailable to the greater part of the populace. In any case, because of Puig and her proceeded with achievement, this is starting to change. In 2013 she achieved the main 10 most persuasive Puerto Ricans list. As Puig keeps on moving in the WTA rankings, so tennis media scope is starting to make up for lost time, and little by little, its openness to general society. As one Puerto Rican occupant says, ‘the change is clear, you can see tennis courts appearing everywhere’.
All the more as of late, Puig won the first-ever WTA Rising Stars Invitational occasion, vanquishing China’s Zheng Saisai in October. This late achievement will undoubtedly proceed with her ubiquity drive and she trusts it will serve as a springboard for greater things next season.
So listen out for the name Monica Puig, you heard it here first.
