Sarah Joy Barredo pounced on an ailing Malvinne Alcala in the semifinals then overpowered Gelita Castilo in the finals to annex the women’s Open singles crown in the FDG Cup 2015 Open and Invitational Badminton Championships at Robinsons Place Ermita late Sunday. No. 7 Mark Alcala took the men’s crown with a 21-17, 21-17 victory over third seed R-Jay Ormilla while top seed Philip Escueta and Ronel Estanislao foiled last year’s Swiss Open titlists Peter Magnaye and Paul Vivas, 21-11, 13-21, 21-14, to capture the men’s doubles crown.
