Monica was first introduced to tennis by her mother, Astrid, and still remembers her first tennis memory playing in a clinic at a country club in Puerto Rico. On the junior circuit she had much success as a teenager winning Gold medals in Singles at the Central American, Pan American and Caribbean Games. She captured her first WTA Singles title in 2014 at Strasbourg, and won the WTA Rising Stars Invitational that same year. Puig rose to tennis stardom in the Summer of 2016, when she won the Olympic Women's Singles Gold Medal in Rio as an unseeded player. She became the second player in Olympic history to ever win the gold as an unseeded player, and helped Puerto Rico win their first ever gold medal in the Olympics. Outside of tennis, Puig enjoys going to the beach, spending time with her family and dogs, reading, and creative writing.
