Ranked: 1st in Puerto Rico

Monica Puig Marchán (born September 27, 1993) is a Puerto Rican professional tennis player and the reigning Olympic champion. She is also a Central American and Caribbean champion and Pan American silver medalist. She is the first athlete to win an Olympic gold medal representing Puerto Rico.

Having turned professional in 2010, Puig has won two WTA singles titles and six ITF singles titles. On 26 September 2016, she reached her career-high singles ranking of world No. 27. On 25 May 2015, she peaked at No. 210 in the doubles rankings.

At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Puig created history by becoming the first Puerto Rican athlete to win the gold medal and the ninth overall medalist for that delegation. With the feat, she also became the first Latin American champion in the women's singles discipline, and is the only unseeded female player to win the gold medal since the reintroduction of tennis in 1988.

God bless you always Monica. Proud of you. Wepa boricua.

Monica, I first noticed you during the Olympics. I became a fan instantly. Mostly at first because you are Puerto Rican. Then the more I watched you, my respect and love for you has grown over time. You play with great sportsmanship and grace. In your work for Puerto Rico you have displayed much empathy and humility. Thank you for all you do. Continued success in all parts of your life. God bless you. #wepa #picapower

God bless you more...but the message for Puerto Rico is very clear if we want to see that whole restauration we need to seek God and we humble and appreciative about everything. We cant keep doing the same thing as because the effect of Maria was like a tsunami ...we are blessed that the island was not wiped out in whole!!!

Thank you for what you do for Puerto Rico... God bless you 🙏😇
