Top seed Diego Dayrit eliminated Amanda Zoleta, 6-3, 6-1, to set up the other semis duel with No. 4 Miguel Vicencio, who dominated Sebastian Lhuillier, 6-0, 6-3, in the event presented by Palawan Pawnshop and held in honor of former Parañaque Mayor Pablo Olivarez.


The unranked Saraza drubbed Alexie Santos, 6-3, 6-4, to book a final four slot against second seed Coleen Sioson, who rallied to edge Bianca Cruz, 1-6, 6-3, 12-10.

Melanie Dizon walked over top seed Rafaella Villanueva to set up a semis encounter with Frances Santiago, who routed Bettina Bautista, 6-0, 6-2.
