/ 12:29 AM January 04, 2013

SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD Roxanne Resma boosted her bid for a double title after ousting Monica Therese Cruz, 6-4, 6-0, yesterday to barge into the girls’ 16-under quarterfinals even as the No. 1 18-under bet also gained a bye in the quarterfinals of the premier division in the 24th Andrada Cup tennis tournament at Rizal Memorial Tennis Center.

Resma will next face the winner of the Angelica Mosqueda-Coleen Sioson match still going on at presstime.

In the centerpiece 18-under, Resma will get going against Khim Iglupas who advanced with a trouble-free 6-0, 6-0 win over Cherinise Mamaril.
