Things are looking up for Khim Iglupas.

The 18-year-old Filipino tennis talent began to entertain offers for athletic scholarship from United States schools, according to her coach, Philippine Tennis Academy mentor Jun Toledo.

Toledo said Iglupas, World No. 104 in juniors, has yet to decide which offer to take, but she’s following the footsteps of PTA alumni Francis Casey Alcantara who finished with a communications degree in Pepperdine University.

The Iligan City native obtained yet another credential after winning the girls’ singles title Sunday in the Phinma-PSC international junior championships Week 2 at Philippine Columbian Association courts.

Iglupas destroyed Rika Tanaka of Japan 6-0, 6-1, in the final for her third Phinma-PSC title. She won Week 1 the past two editions.

It was a double celebration for Iglupas as she and partner Lee Kuan-yi of Chinese Taipei outlasted Japanese pair Risa Fukutoku and Tanaka, 6-2, 6-7 (4), (10-7), to rule girls’ doubles.

Later, Otico teamed up with Japanese Seita Watanabe to overcome the  Japanese tandem of Tomoya Ikeda and Saitoh, 6-4, 3-6, (10-5), and capture boys’ doubles’ top prize.

Late Saturday she dumped another Japanese, Shiho Tsukuda, 6-4, 6-4, in the semifinals, a few hours after drubbing yet another Japanese, Ange Oby Kajuro (6-3, 1-6, 6-4),  in the quarterfinals of the rain-disrupted tournament.
