As the husband of a Puerto Rican wife,...

...AND as a big tennis fan, I'd like to give a well deserved shout out to Monica Puig, the 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist in Women's Singles in Tennis. She played WAY above her world ranking this week and beat many players who are ranked higher than she, including #2 Angelique Kerber in yesterday's Gold Medal match, to join the ranks of Steffi Graf and both of the Williams sisters as an Olympic champion.

Even if she never wins another title, she will now and forever be a Gold Medalist.

BTW, I've long expected her to have a NICE tennis future!

Boricua power!!!

PEACE!

2. Me too!

My favorite player, though, is my champion, Victoria Azarenka!

PEACE!

4. We are, too!

I personally equate Olympic Gold to a Grand Slam title.

I wonder if this will boost her world ranking or if the Olympics doesn't count in WTA rankings?

PEACE!
