Olympic champ fumes at coach's 'slap in the face'


//

Olympic champion Monica Puig was distraught after her first-round loss at the U.S. Open but not as upset as she was about the way her coach abandoned her.

Puig said the way she found out that her former coach, Kamau Murray, had left her to go work with Sloane Stephens was devastating.

After a 6-3, 6-3 loss to Rebecca Peterson on Monday, Puig said she did not hear about the change from Murray and instead got word from others and from photos on social media. Puig said: "It came as a huge shock."

Murray coached Stephens to the 2017 U.S. Open title but they subsequently parted ways.

"I wanted to prove to myself [at the US Open] that nobody is going to be able to treat me this way in anything," Puig told tennis reporter Reem Abulleil after her loss.

"To give and to receive a slap in the face, it's hard."
