Carbonilla, Padilla bag PPS Ozamiz net plums

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Aslan Carbonilla and Judy Padilla fashioned out a pair of emphatic victories to share top honors in the 12-and-under play of the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Ozamiz leg age-group tennis tournament at the Ozamiz City Tennis Club last Monday.

Carbonilla, from Maramding, Lanao, lived up to his top billing by dropping just three games, capped by a 6-0, 6-2 romp over Vince Bering in the finals while local bet Padilla trampled Angel Denopol, 6-2, 6-1, in her side of the championship in the rain-hit Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop and presented by Slazenger.

The two rising stars, however, fell short of their respective bids in the higher 14-U category as Tubod, Lanao’s Brent Cortes foiled Carbonilla, 6-4, 6-4, and Grace Gupit, also from Tubod, stunned Padilla, 6-4, 7-6(6), in the five-day event circuit backed by Asiatraders Corp. and Dunlop as official ball.

“Though they failed to complete a twinkill, Carbonilla and Padilla succeeded in creating an impact with their brand of play which we hope to enhance through our year-long, nationwide circuit,” said Palawan Pawnshop president/CEO Bobby Castro.

Padilla actually came away with two titles as she teamed up with Denopol to edge Guia Bandolis and Jedidah Gupit, 8-6, in the 14-U doubles finals.
