Unranked Yasmin Garsin fought back from a set down then outplayed No. 5 Gaby Zoleta in the decider to hack out a 3-6, 6-3, 10-4 decision and clinch a berth in the semifinal round of the PPS-PEPP Manila Polo Club National age-group tennis tournament at Forbes Park’s MPC outdoor courts in Makati City on Tuesday.

Garsin banked on her baseline game and came through with big shots in the second set to draw level then sustained her form in the third to complete the reversal in the Group 2 tournament dominated by the seeded bets.
