ARCILLA RETAINS OLIVAREZ CUP CROWN AS TIERRO RETIRES

0

Johnny Arcilla turned a losing stand into a resounding victory as he pounced on a cramps-stricken Patrick John Tierro and hacked out a 6-3, 6-7(6), 4-6, 6-4, 3-1 (ret.) to keep the men’s singles crown in the fourth Olivarez Cup Open Tennis Championship presented by Palawan Pawnshop at the Olivarez Sports Center in Sucat, Parañaque on Sunday. Down 1-2 in sets and 0-4 in the fourth frame, Arcilla overcame two love-40 deficits to make it a 2-4 match as Tierro struggled while fighting off stomach cramps. The defending champion then went on to win the next four games to force the decider and later clinch the match and the crown.
