Tennis at Southwoods

Over 200 entries set out for a week-long test of will and power as they slug it out in the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Southwoods leg regional age-group tennis tournament at the Manila Southwoods tennis courts in Carmona, Cavite today.

Jose Pague, Alex Bulilan, Tim Gumban and Laurenz Quitara banner the field in the boys’ 18-and-under class while Lila Salvacio, Bettina Bautista, Bea de Ocampo and Denise Bernardo fight it out for top honors and ranking points in the premier side of the girls’ division of the Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop and presented by Slazenger.

Quitara, meanwhile, gains the top seeding in the 32-player 16-U draw with EJ Geluz, Athan Arejola and Bulilan as the next top-ranked netters in the event backed by Asiatraders Corp. and the new Unified tennis group, led by PPS-PEPP, Cebuana Lhuillier, Wilson, Toby’s and B-Meg.

Lila Salacion and Bernardo, on the other hand, are the players to beat in the girls’ 16-U play.
