sizzle in lawn tennis
While Alvin Patrimonio has established himself as one of the top players in the Philippine Basketball Association, his daughters, Christine and Clarisse, opted to make a name for themselves in women’s tennis.
The Patrimonio sisters faced each other Saturday at the Noah’s Haven Indoor Tennis Court to dispute the gold in the 2011 POC-PSC National Games with Clarisse prevailing over her older sibling Christine, 6-4, 6-2.
Ranked No. 1 in local tennis, Clarisse, 17, was an ITF Grade 4 champion in Hong Kong and Brunei and has a 134th ranking in International Tennis Federation. She will represent the country in the Thailand ITF juniors next month.
