    Santiago gets even with Sazara, cops 16-under title in tennis festival

    May 19, 2013

    THIRD seed Frances Angela Santiago capped her spectacular run by conquering second pick Chloe Mae Saraza, 6-0, 6-1, to top the girls 16-under division of the Toby's Sports-Prince Tennis Festival 2013 at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center Sunday.

    It was the second straight win by Santiago over a higher ranked opponent after she pulled the rug from under top seed Ma. Dominique Ong, 6-0, 6-3, in the semifinal round the day before in this weeklong event  presented by Toby’s Sports and Prince, along with the Philippine Tennis Association, Equipe, Adidas, Lonsdale, Kangaroos & urbanAthletics.

    Ong, however, made up for the loss by topping the girls' 18-under class where she was the No. 2 seed, thanks to a hard-fought, 7-6 (3), 6-4,win over Patricia Nicole Paez.

    Paez earlier created a ripple by shocking No. 1 Isabella Mendoza, 5-7, 6-2, 6-0, in the semis the previous day.

    Saraza got back at Santiago, 6-1, 6-3.to win the girls 14-under title.

    Santiago barged in the finals by stunning top seed Rafaella Jean Villanueva, daughter of Phl Davis Cup coordinator Randy Villanueva, 6-1, 6-2, in the semis.

    Mikaela Vicencio, in contrast, restored order in the girls' 12-under section by living up to her top billing by downing No. 2 Alexandra Eala, 6-1, 6-2, to reign supreme in her age group.

    In the 10-under unisex class, Eurydice Gaspar edged Luis Miguel Vicencio, 7-6 (1), 6-4, to snare the crown.

    No. 5 Jed Justin Labasano trounced No. 3 Jan Harold Trillanes, 6-2, 7-6 (2), 6-2, and No. 2 Alexander Bulilan edged No. 4 Ramon Wilfred Bentillo, 6-3, 7-5, to forge an interesting title showdown in the boys' 12-under.
