A couple of 40-somethings are chomping their way through the 39th Philippine Columbian Association (PCA) Open Tennis Championships in Paco, Manila.

Johnny Arcilla, 42, crushed 23-year-old former age-grouper Norman Enriquez, 6-0, 6-2, at PCA’s indoor shell court on Wednesday to solidify his status as the tournament’s top seed.

“So far, so good,” Arcilla said as he marched to the quarterfinals of a tournament he is hoping to win for the third straight staging.

Joining him in the last eight is 40-year-old fourth seed Elber Anasta, who bucked cramps and held off a game Alax Acabo, 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (2).
