(The Philippine Star) - April 12, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Young Glydel Guevarra trounced Carla Andrada twice, including a 6-0, 6-2 romp in the 16-and-under finals to complete a three-title feat in the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Bicol Open regional age-group at the University of Saint Anthony Tennis Club in Iriga City recently.

The 12-year-old Guevarra dominated her age bracket with a 6-0, 6-0 rout of Maya Cabrera and ripped Andrada, 6-1, 6-0, in the 14-U finals before capping her exploits in the tougher 16-U division of the Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop headed by president/CEO Bobby Castro and backed by Asiatraders Corp.

Marcel Correa, meanwhile, scored a “double” in boys’ play, crushing Kian Nuñez twice, 4-0, 4-0, in the 10-unisex finals and 6-0, 6-1 in the 12-U championship to share MVP honors with his fellow Iriga bet Guevarra.

Other winners were Iriga’s Patricia Corporal and Naga City’s Jolo Basa, who ruled the 18-U division via short route, and local aces Marlo Correa, who captured the 14-U crown, and Jan Harold Trillanes, who topped the 16-U section of the event backed by Asiatraders Corp.

Guevarra actually racked up four titles as she later teamed up with Corporal to rout Lagatuz and Uy, 8-1, in the 18-U doubles finals, while Hernandez and Trillanes took the boys’ diadem with an 8-4 victory over Lagatuz and Angelo Saunar. Other doubles winners were Maya and Naya Cabrera, and CJ De Castro and Tatin Wong (14-U) and Marcel Correa and Keyin Oliva (10-unisex).

Meanwhile, action in the PPS-PEPP Legazpi leg age-grouper, sanctioned by the Unified Tennis Philippines, made up of PPS-PEPP, Cebuana Lhuillier, Wilson, Toby’s, Dunlop, Slazenger and B-Meg, heats up with the Iriga stage winners hoping to sustain their winning forms.
