Puig: 'I want to provide hope to people who have lost everything'



SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Maria Sharapova and Monica Puig arrived in Puerto Rico on Monday to help with recovery efforts after Hurricane Maria.

Sharapova, a five-time Grand Slam champion, and Puig, who won Puerto Rico's first Olympic gold medal in any sport at the Rio de Janeiro Games last summer, landed on the island Monday and were received by Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello, whose administration will help them to distribute portable stoves, medicine and other supplies.

"My mom [Astrid Marchan] always told me that God put me in this world for a reason. I think that the reason is to help Puerto Rico and provide hope for all those people who have lost everything. At this moment, this is what we need," Puig said during a news conference at San Juan's Luis Munoz Marin airport.

The two WTA players will visit San Jorge Children's Hospital in San Juan and then attend an activity in the town of Loiza. The agency that represents both players said Wednesday that Puig has raised more than $125,000 to help storm victims, while Sharapova is donating proceeds from her candy company for the rest of 2017.

Puig lost in the weekend's final in BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open to Germany's Carina Witthoeft 6-3, 7-5 but dedicated her week to the people of Puerto Rico with an emotional speech during the event's awards ceremony.
