Johnny Arcilla and Jeson Patrombon hope to recover from their Davis Cup debacle as they lead the title chase in the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Brookside Open unfolding April 13 at the Brookside Hills Tennis Club in Cainta, Rizal.

Patrombon, 25, actually set the pace for Team Phl in its Davis Cup tie with Thailand, winning the first singles. But the hosts lost the next four matches, (second singles, doubles and first reverse singles) and yielded a 1-4 setback.

But Patrombon and Arcilla are expected to figure prominently in the upcoming tournament along with Vicente Anasta and Rolando Ruel Jr plus a slew of young, rising stars raring to show their worth in the event sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop and presented by Dunlop as official ball.

Fierce action is also seen in women’s play with the Patrimonio sisters – Clarice and Christine – tipped to crowd the likes of Marian Capadocia and Aileen Rogan for top honors.
