Arcilla, Patrombon stay on Brookside collision course


Johnny Arcilla and Jeson Patrombon toppled their respective rivals in straight-set fashions to roll into the semifinal round and stay on track for a title face-off in the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Brookside Hills Open Tennis Championships at the Brookside Hills Tennis Club in Cainta, Rizal yesterday.

The top-seeded Arcilla, 38, kept his run of lopsided results with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Rodolfo Barquin to arrange a Final Four showdown with third ranked Vicente Anasta, who held off Dheo Talatayod, 6-3, 6-4, in their quarters duel.

Arcilla earlier disposed of Renest Sonsona, 6-2, 6-2, then eased past Chat Conta, 6-1, 6-0, while Anasta downed Norman Gaspar, 6-1, 6-4, then thwarted Joseph Arcilla, 6-2, 7-6(4).

No. 2 Patrombon, on the other hand, clobbered Anthony Alcoseba, 6-0, 6-1, to advance in the lower half of the elite 32-player draw in the weeklong event put up by Palawan Pawnshop and backed by Asiatraders Corp., distributor of Slazenger/Dunlop as official ball.
