• Martin, Cuizon share PPS-PEPP Iloilo honors


    Jacob Martin and Chad Connor Cuizon both survived second set scares and pulled off a pair of tough victories over Alfrancis Andrade and Jeff Jimenea, respectively, to lead the winners in the upset-marred Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala regional tennis circuit at the Iloilo City Tennis Center last Monday. The top-seeded Martin, playing out of Xavier School, played true to form and romped off with four straight-set victories but needed to toughen up against the unranked Andrade in the boys’ 16-and-under finals to hack out a 6-1, 7-6(2) victory. The second-ranked Cuizon also got past three rivals via straight-set victories but had to withstand Jeff Jimenea’s fightback to carve out a 4-2, 5-3 decision over the No. 1 bet in the 10-unisex finals of the five-day Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop and presented by Slazenger.
