Madis seeks repeat

Published

Tennielle Madis hopes to duplicate her two-title feat last week while new faces are expected to emerge in the boys’ side of the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Dangcagan leg age-group tennis tournament, which got under way in Bukidnon yesterday.

Madis topped the 12- and 14-and-under divisions in Cagayan de Oro but the rising Mlang, Cotabato star is in for a tough outing this time with Casey Padilla out to avenge her 6-2, 6-4 defeat to the former in the 12-U finals last week.

Tipped to crowd the duo in both divisions are Jillian Manangking and Angelie Ripdos with Angela Buyante looming as the other player to watch in the 14-U side of the Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop and presented by Slazenger.

Close to 200 entries are seeing action in the five-day event hosted by Mayor Fruto Dandasan, who tapped the Dangcagan and the Kibawe, Maramag tennis clubs to accommodate the big number of participants in the event backed by Asiatraders Corp.
