    Resma, Victoria triumph

    Dec 22, 2012

    ROXANNE Resma and John Maverick Victoria came away with victories in contrasting fashions to capture the centerpiece 18-and-under crowns on Saturday in the Philippine Sports Commission-Philippine Tennis Association Age-Group Tennis Championships at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center.

    The top seeded Resma overpowered Ma. Dominique Ong, 6-0, 6-1, in the girls’ final, while the unseeded Victoria downed No. 4 Betto Orendain, 7-6 (2), 6-4, in the boys’ title match.

    Miko Eala won the boys’ 12-and-under title with a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Gabriel Tiamson. He earlier shut out Juan Miguel Jugo, 6-0, 6-0, to pocket the 10-unisex diadem.

    It was a memorable title win for Victoria, who also had to scrape past Andre Rodriguez, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5, earlier to get a shot at the title in the week-long tournament that awarded Philta ranking points. Resma and Victoria gained 200 points each.

    Khim Iglupas, who lost to Resma in the 18-and-under semis, got back at her tormentor by carving out a 6-4, 6-4 victory to annex the girls’ 16-and-under plum. Unranked Monika Therese Cruz capped her remarkable stint by beating No. 4 Chloe May Saraza, 6-1, 7-5, to claim the girls’ 14-and-under diadem.

    Allesi Vicencio took the girls’ 12-and-under crown with a 7-5 (5), 6-1 victory over Bettina Bautista, while Betto Orendain stunned third seed Stefan Suarez, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, to pocket the boys’ 16-and-under title of the event backed by the PSC and Philta with Dunlop Fort as official ball.
