Guevarra posts rare sweep in Naga netfest

Glydel Guevarra sustained her fine form and racked up three girls’ crowns while JB Aguilar nailed another two-title romp in the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Naga leg regional age group tennis tournament at the Naga City Tennis Courts in Camarines Sur yesterday.

Guevarra, who fell one title short in last week’s stop of the circuit at home in Iriga, completed the three-title feat in style, beating Abby de Castro, Myah Cabrera and Emily Mendez via the same scorelines – 6-0, 6-0.

Aguilar also came away with a 6-0, 6-0 rout of Sam Angeles in the boys’ 12-U finals then the Camalig, Albay bet stunned top seed JC Gonzales, 6-3, 5-7(7), 10-6, to snare the 14-U diadem for back-to-back two-title romp in the Group 4 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop and presented by Slazenger.

“Guevarra’s sweep of three titles impresses us the most and we hope to produce more of her kind and that of Aguilar’s and the other winners through our year-long, nationwide talent-search,” said Palawan Pawnshop president/CEO Bobby Castro.

Other winners in the five-day tournament backed by Asiatraders Corp. and the new Unified tennis group, led by PPS-PEPP, Cebuana Lhuillier, Wilson, Toby’s and B-Meg were Jennard Gonzales, Kurt Molina, Aa Aguilar and Nica Alanis.

Gonzales, from Legazpi City, turned back Osward Hernandez, 6-4, 2-6, 10-6, in the boys’ 16-U finals; Molina, Daet, Camarines Norte, subdued Walter Luzon, 6-3, 6-3, for the boys’ 18-U plum; Aa Aguilar, also from Camalig, took the 10-unisex crown with a 4-2, 4-1 romp over Paul Esplana; and Alanis, also from Iriga, took the girls’ 18-U title for the second straight week with a 6-2, 6-0 victory over Patricia Corporal.

Meanwhile, action in the PPS-PEPP shifts to Sta. Rosa, Laguna on July 21-24 while the Orchard Golf and Country Club in Dasmariñas, Cavite will host the next stop on July 27-31, both Group 2 tournaments. For details, call PPS-PEPP sports program development director Bobby Mangunay at 0915-4046464.
