MANILA, Philippines — Justine Maneja dished out top form to dominate two divisions in girls’ play while young Kriz Lim snatched victories in singles and doubles as they shared the MVP honors in the PPS-PEPP Brookside Open national age-group tennis tournament at the Brookside Hills Tennis Club in Cainta, Rizal last Sunday.

Maneja, 15, dropped just three games on her way to the finals of the girls’ 16-and-under play then crushed Mica Emana, 6-4, 6-0, to clinch the crown. The Arellano U mainstay later scored a 6-1, 4-1(ret.) victory over Kryshana Brazal to emerge the lone “double” winner in the Group I tournament presented by Dunlop.

Lim, from Urdaneta, grabbed the spotlight in the boys’ side, ripping Novak Brazal, 4-0, 4-1, in the 10-unisex finals then teaming up with Samuel Davila to rout Brazal and Jorge Matta, 8-1, in the 10-U doubles of the event sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala and held side by side with the country’s premier players in the centerpiece Open category.
