MANILA, Philippines — Marian Capadocia re-asserted her mastery over Khim Iglupas but Johnny Arcilla got back at Jeson Patrombon as they shared the PPS-PEPP Pinamalayan Open Tennis Championships top honors at the Bahaghari Tennis Club in Oriental Mindoro yesterday.

Capadocia, 22, flashed superb form and broke Iglupas early in both sets en route to a surprisingly lopsided 6-2, 6-3 victory in women’s singles finals of the event sponsored by Gov. Alfonso Umali Jr. It was the Antique ace’s third straight championship, counting her victories in the Brookside Open and the Mac’s Crankit Open where she outlasted Iglupas, 7-6(4), 4-6, 7-6(5).

Arcilla, in contrast, atoned for his setback to Patrombon at Mac’s Crankit with a 6-3, 6-4 victory to add the men’s singles crown to his vast trophy collection. The veteran Davis Cupper received P30,000 while Capadocia pocketed P20,000.

Reigning PCA Open winner Bryan Otico and Shaira Rivera bagged the mixed doubles crown worth P20,000 as they trounced Fritz Verdad and Clarice Patrimonio in the weeklong event backed by Palawan Pawnshop headed by president/CEO Bobby Castro and held in partnership with the provincial government of Oriental Mindoro with board member Butch Buenaventura as event coordinator.
