(The Philippine Star) - March 13, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Jan Godfrey Seno and Tracy Llamas try to make it two in a row as they headline the field in the Consolacion leg of the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala regional age group presented by Technifibre at the Consolacion Tennis Club starting  today in Laray, Cebu.

Seno and Llamas racked up two victories each in last week’s Lapu-Lapu leg of the nationwide circuit with the former, a Bogo, Cebu native, installed as the player to beat in the boys’ 18- and 16-and-under classes.

Llamas, on the other hand, seeks to score a repeat in the girls’ 14- and 18-U categories with the La Carlota mainstay also vying in the 16-U section of the Group 2 tournament sponsored by the country’s leading pawnshop, remittance and claim center.

Llamas, however, will have her hands full in the centerpiece event top-billed by Ma. Dominique Ong, Shyne Villareal, Zethley Alferez, Kristin Salimbangon and Queene Tunacao. Villareal, Alferez and Salimbangon are also seeing action in the 16-U side of the five-day event sanctioned by the Philippine Tennis Association headed by president and Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez.

“Despite the presence of the big guns, we expect a number of reversals that have been the norm in all our tournaments with new faces andd promising players emerging,” said Palawan Pawnsho COO Bobby Castro.

Meanwhile, the 10th leg of the 38-stage circuit will be held March 20-23 at the Ouans Resort Tennis Courts in Lucena, Quezon. Registration is ongoing. For details, call up Bobby Mangunay, PPS-PEPP Sports Program Development director, at 0915-4046464.

The chase for the 10-unisex crown is also tipped to go down-to-the-wire among Nocos, Ethan Quino, Josh Abad and John Coderos.
