PH, Thai Cuppers split opening singles


LAPU-LAPU CITY—The Cebuana Lhuillier-Philippine Davis Cup team split the opening singles with Thailand last night, 1-1, with Ruben Gonzales beating cramping first-timer Wishaya Trongcharoenchaikul in the first rubber only to watch Johnny Arcilla get decimated by top ranked Danai Udomchoke in the second match last night.

Wishaya complained of cramps on his both legs in the second game of the third set and asked for medical timeout, forcing non-playing captain Tanakorn Srichapan to throw in the towel at 6-7 (8-6), 6-4, 2-0 (ret.) at Plantation Bay  Resort and Spa.

Danai, ranked 207th in the world, redeemed the Thai side with a 6-3, 6-2, 1-6, 6-2, win over Arcilla in the second match that was delayed for 30 minutes by power outage.
