Puig takes Wimbledon by storm -- OK, well, not that Puig
Women's tennis has long been considered a sport of stars in which the only real suspense occurs during the final rounds. So 19-year-old Monica Puig stunned the All-England club Monday with her victory over third-seeded Sara Errani. The Puerto Rican became the talk of Wimbledon after the straight-set win, and followed that performance with a second-round defeat of Spain's Silvia Soler-Espinosa on Wednesday.
As far as we can tell, Puig isn't directly related to Dodgers outfield sensation Yasiel Puig. But it sure is eerie that there are two Puigs going Bobby Boucher on their respective sports right now.
