• ARCILLA, TIERRO THWART RIVALS, FORGE TITLE CLASH

    0

    Johnny Arcilla and Patrick John Tierro survived a pair of three-set thrillers to arrange an explosive title showdown in the fourth Olivarez Cup Open Tennis Championship presented by Palawan Pawnshop at the Olivarez Sports Center in Sucat, Parañaque on Friday. The top seeded Arcilla, who dropped just eight games and never lost a set on his way to the semis, bucked Fil-Italian Marc Reyes and cramps in the third set as he rallied from an opening set setback to win the next two, including a tense decider for a 5-7. 6-3, 7-5 victory. Unlike Arcilla, Tierro broke young Alberto Lim once to seize the opening set but faltered in the second before recovering his bearing and re-stamping his class over his 14-year-old rival to hack out a 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 decision in two hours and 10 minutes.
