Guillermo in Suarez semis


Unheralded Elijah Guillermo dished out top form and hacked out a 6-2, 6-4 victory over second seed Dan Mates to barge into the semifinal round of the boys’ premier division in the PPS-PEPP Fr. Fernando Suarez Open Championships at the Brent Tennis Center in Biñan, Laguna last weekend.

Guillermo rode on a pair of lopsided triumphs over Gene Zuno (4-0, 4-0) and Jefferson Planilla (4-0, 2-0 ret.) to topple Mates and arrange a Final Four duel with Laurenz Quitara, who gained with a 1-0 ret. win over Stephen Catipon.

Top seed Leyton Portin and No. 4 Jester Ocio forged a clash in the upper bracket with the former thwarting Terrell Arejola, 7-5, 6-3, and the latter holding off Jason Camanting, 6-4, 6-2, in 18-U play of the two weekend tournament kicking off the second half of the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala tennis season.
