Arcillas duel in Olivarez third round

DEFENDING champion Johnny Arcilla and doubles partner Vicente Anasta cruised into the third round of the Olivarez Cup Open Tennis Championship presented by Palawan Pawnshop last Monday at Olivarez Sports Center in Sucat, Parañaque.

The top seeded Arcilla blanked qualifier Chat Conta, 6-0, 6-0, to set up a duel with brother Joseph, who trounced Arcie Mano, 6-1, 6-1.

Anasta won by default over Alberto Villamor and will meet top junior Alberto Lim, who ousted Eric Jed Olivarez, 6-3, 6-2.

Third seed Patrick Tierro also posted a 6-1, 6-2 triumph over Jacob Lagman.

Other winners were No. 4 Marc Reyes, who beat Arc Dolorito, 6-1, 6-1; fifth seed Jason Patrombon, who bundled out Calvin Canlas, 6-3, 6-3; No. 6 Rolando Ruel Jr., who defeated Fritz Verdad, 6-4, 6-3; seventh ranked Ronard Joven, who booted out Antonio Sagaysay III, 6-3, 6-2; and No. 10 Alex Lazaro, who ousted Jigo Pena, 6-1, 6-0.

No. 8 Leander Lazaro and ninth seed Mark Anthony Alcoseba, on the other hand, needed to rally from first set setbacks to turn back Stefan Suarez, 4-6, 6-0, 6-2; and Romel Openiano, 5-7, 6-4, 7-6(3), respectively in the event held in honor of Philta president and Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez.

Action in the ladies singles also heats up today with top seed Clarice Patrimonio battling Ma. Angela Sunga and No. 2 Edilyn Balanga taking on Joanna Tan for berths in the quarterfinal round of the event sanctioned by Philta and backed by Dunlop as official ball.
