Alforque, Milliam share Maasin honors

Venz Alforque underscored his status one of the country’s top junior players by completing a title double in the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Maasin leg regional age-group tennis tournament at the Maasin City Tennis Courts in Leyte over the weekend.

The top-seeded Alforque clobbered Ceasar Salimbangon, 6-3, 6-1, to nail the 16-U title then as No. 5 in the 18-U side, the pride of Naga, Cebu upended second seed Troy Llamas, 6-3, 6-2, in the semis then stopped Ken Mejia, 6-2, 6-3, to complete a “double” in the Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop and presented by Slazenger.

The title double enabled Alforque to win the tournament MVP.

Top seeds Alexa Milliam from La Carlota and Elsie Abarquez from Carcar, Cebu matched that two-title romp with the former beating Corazon Lambonao, 6-4, 6-0, in the 12-U finals before dominating Mia Gemida, 6-2, 6-0, for the 14-U diadem to clinch the MVP title in the girls’ side.
