Milliam cops 2 PPS plums

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Alexa Milliam bested a tough field and racked up two titles while Brent So and Joss Po shared the MVP honors in the boys’ side of the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Brookside Hills regional age-group tennis tournament at the Brookside Hills Tennis Club in Cainta, Rizal last Thursday.

Milliam, the 14-year-old rising star from Pontevedra, Negros, struggled past Jenaila Prulla of Bulacan, 6-3, 6-4, to rule her age division then toppled Marie Cruz, 6-2, 6-3, to add the 16-U plum and clinch the MVP honors in the Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop and presented by Dunlop as official ball.

So, from San Juan City, completed a rare romp, taking the boys’ 12-U title without dropping a game, capping his exploits with a win over Ray Solo, while Po, from Makati, fended off Novak Brazal, 4-1, 5-3, to snare the 10-unisex diadem in the week-long tournament sanctioned by the United Tennis Philippines, made up of PPS-PEPP, Cebuana Lhuillier, Wilson, Toby’s, Dunlop, Slazenger and B-Meg.
