Sweep by Enriquez


Sydney Ezra Enriquez enhanced a promising tennis career by posting two more victories in the Sindangan leg of the Palawan Pawnshop Palawan Express Pera Padala age group tennis circuit, completing a rare sweep of the three-leg Zamboanga Del Norte swing last Monday.

The 16-year-old Enriquez, unranked in her age group, worked her way up with a string of lopsided victories then trounced Princess Gom-os, 6-2, 6-1, in the finals. The Salug, Zambo del Norte ace then repeated over Gom-os, 6-3, 7-5, to nail the 18-and-under crown, thus matching her feats in the Liloy and Salug stops of the Group 2 tournament presented by Dunlop.

Enriquez capped her big week in the event hosted and sponsored by Mayor Nilo Florentino Sy by winning the girls’ 18-U doubles plum in partnership with Faith Virgo as they edged Gom-os and Angel Refaja, 8-6.

“Enriquez’s hard work and determination should inspire the other youngsters and the year-long, nationwide PPS-PEPP circuit will continue to provide the stage for them,” said Palawan Pawnshop president/CEO Bobby Castro.

Nilo Ledama also pulled off a three-title romp in the boys’ side of the event sanctioned by the Unified Tennis Philippines, made up of PPS-PEPP, Cebuana Lhuillier, Wilson, Toby’s, Dunlop, Slazenger and B-Meg, beating Nash Agustines, 7-5, 6-2, in the 16-U finals and crushing John Baje, 6-0, 6-1, for the 18-U diadem.

The Pagadian City ace later teamed up with Jessy Elumba to rout top seed Agustines and Lex Estillore, 8-3, in the 18-U doubles championship.
