Cebuana Lhuillier-PH Davis Cup ranked 10th in Asia
Despite an extended five-year stay in Group 2, the Cebuana Lhuillier-Philippine Davis Cup has been ranked 10th in Asia.
Asian Tennis Federation cited the Philippines as among the “Asian strength in Davis Cup,” which has been “pushing their way in the top of the World Team Championships.”
The Philippines, composed this year of Treat Huey, Ruben Gonzales, John Patrick Tierro and Francis Casey Alcantara, blanked Sri Lanka in the Group 2 first round, 5-0. But it fell to Chinese Taipei in the semifinals held in Kaohsiung, 3-1.
That kept the country to Group 2 until next year. RC
