By

LAPU-LAPU CITY—Favorites Roxanne Resma and Khim Iglupas hurdled their respective semifinals assignments yesterday to forge a title showdown in the centerpiece girls’ 18-under of the Truflex national age-group tennis championships here.

Top seed Resma downed Maria Dominique Ong, 6-4, 6-3, while Iglupas overcame a hard-fighting Jana Pages, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, to set the championship tiff at Haruhay Dream Resort.

Already an age-group stalwart, Resma also made her move in the girls’ 16-under when she defeated Rafaella Villanueva, 6-0, 6-0. Resma will face either Jane Pages or  Zethley Mae Alferez who are still playing at presstime.

In boys’ 16-under at Mactan Airbase Tennis Club, Dave Sebastian Mosqueda kept his steady pace toward the quarterfinals after beating Fabien Callaud, 6-4, 6-3.  Other quarterfinalists are Jermain Carl Chi Laurel and Emmanuel Vacalares.

At Amores Tennis Club, Alferez scored an impressive 6-1, 6-1 win over Kristin Renee Salimbangon and joined Shyne Villareal in the girls’ 14-under semis.

Advancing to the boys’ 14-under quarterfinals at Mactan Airbase tennis courts were local boy Godfrey Seno, Fabien Calaug, Harvey Gilbuena  and Jace Christian Unto.

The event is sponsored by Truflex Sports Surfacing Corporation, presented by Smart and also supported by Megaworld’s Mactan New Town, Foton Motors Philippines, Cebuana Lhuillier, Bayswater, Thirsty Fruit Shakes, and Plantation Bay Resort and Spa.
