Mónica Puig’s instant love affair with the All England Club continues…
Following her upset victory over fifth-seed Sara Errani on Monday, the 19-year-old Puerto Rican rising tennis star is still alive and kicking at Wimbledon.
Puig registered a hard-fought, three-sets victory over by Spain’s Silvia Soler Espinosa, 6-2, 5-7, 6-4, in her second-round match on Wednesday.
Puig, competing in only her second Grand Slam tournament, is playing in her first grand slam tournament as a professional player.
She made her Grand Slam debut this year at the French Open, where she became the first woman from Puerto Rico to reach the third round.
Puig next faces the Czech Republic’s Eva Birnerova in the third round.
