Capadocia, Arcilla rule Palawan tennis
Marian Capadocia reasserted her mastery over Khim Iglupas but Johnny Arcilla got back at Jeson Patrombon as they shared the PPS-PEPP Pinamalayan Open Tennis Championships top honors at Bahaghari Tennis Club in Oriental Mindoro Wednesday.
Capadocia, 22, broke Iglupas early in both sets en route to a surprisingly lopsided 6-2, 6-3 victory in the women’s singles finals of the event sponsored by Gov. Alfonso Umali Jr. Arcilla, in contrast, atoned for his setback to Patrombon in a recent tournament with a 6-3, 6-4 victory to add the men’s singles crown to his vast trophy collection.
The veteran Davis Cupper received P30,000 while Capadocia pocketed P20,000.
