Patrombon scores; Patrimonio falls

10:01 AM November 03, 2010
Second seed Jeson Patrombon made it to the second round, but Anna Clarice Patrimonio bowed out Tuesday in the Seogwipo Asian/Oceania Closed junior tennis championships in Jeju-do, South Korea.

Patrombon struggled before slipping past unseeded Rishabdev Raman of India, 6-4, 6-3, to reach the Round of 32  where he will take on local boy Hogi Kang.

  Kang ousted Shukhrat Gizatulin of Uzbekistan, 6-0, 6-1.   Patrimonio was eliminated by 16th seed Kanami Tsuji, who prevailed, 6-1, 6-4, in the opening round.   Patrombon’s coach Manny Tecson blamed the cold and windy conditions for what he decribed as his ward’s unimpressive showing.   “I told Jeson to use the wind wisely to his advantage instead of fighting it,” said Tecson in an e-mail yesterday.   He said Patrombon had a hard time adjusting, failing to put more spin on his shots and staying too far back when the wind was blowing behind him thereby losing the chance to pounce on weak returns.   “If the wind is blowing against you then you have to hit hard and aim higher at the net for your balls to land deep. You have to make the necessary adjustments to use the wind to your advantage,” he added.   Meanwhile, Marinel Rudas also failed to make the second round when qualifier Kim Jung-eun dealt her a 6-1, 6-2 beating in the ICTSI-ITF Women’s Tennis Circuit Week 1 at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center.   Rudas’ exit completed a shutout for the local campaigners this early in the competition presented by ICTSI, Philippine Sports Commission, Slazenger Balls, Chris Sports, Viva Mineral Water, Coca Cola, Powerade and Century Park Hotel.   She joined compatriots Marian Jade Capadocia, Tamitha Nguyen and Patrimonio, who were wiped out in the first round Tuesday.   Four Thais advanced into the second round led by  top seed Nannasuk Nungnadda, who bundled out Japanese Yoko Naito, 6-2, 6-0. She will face Indian Nimisha Mohan who earlier ousted Capadocia, 7-5, 3-6, 6-1.   Also advancing was Voratchaya Wongteanchai, who trounced Korean Han Na-lae, 7-5, 6-0, to set up a clash with compatriot Luksika Kumkhum.
