Jeson Patrombon and Marian Capadocia pulled off a pair of three-set thrillers over their respective top-seeded rivals to share top honors in the PPS-PEPP MAC’s Crankit Open Tennis Championships at the PCA courts in Paco, Manila last Sunday.

Patrombon, 25, rallied from an opening set defeat with a big fightback in the second frame then banked on a strong finish to beat fellow Davis Cup veteran Johnny Arcilla in the decider, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2, and claim the men’s Open singles crown worth P100,000 in the event sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala and the MAC’s Crankit Foundation of Australia, led by MCTA (MAC’s Crankit Tennis Academy) founder-coach Patricia Concon-Puzon.

Capadocia, on the other hand, upended top seed Khim Iglupas in a nail-biting, see-sawing finale, hacking out a 7-6(4), 4-6, 7-6(5) decision to snare the women’s Open singles diadem worth P50,000 in the weeklong event backed by Dunlop, Happy Pet Products, Rep. Patrick Aquino, Tan Yan Kee Foundation, Pacific Cross, Secure Storage, The Catalog Shopper, Sea King, DWIZ 882 AM, Positive Session, Silver Screen and Brohood.
