Titing Sayson and Lito Tenepre of the La Paloma Tennis Club in Labangon led the cast of the quarterfinalists in the premier level B+ in yesterday’s edition of the 2nd Baseline Open Doubles Tennis Tournament at the Baseline Tennis Courts.

The Sayson-Tenepre tandem bested the pair of Naga/Argao Team’s Bosing Romaguera and Bryan Kintanar, 8-3, to secure a quarterfinal seat in the tournament sponsored by Technifibre.

Atan Largo and Rere Legazpi of Team Naga City TC joined Tenepre and Sayson into the round of 16 in the B+ division after the former displayed a flawless game in blotting out Team Tuburan TC’s Chester and Roy Tabotabo, 8-0.

Also making it into the quarterfinals of the B+ division is the Sano/Popoy Team, which downed the pair of Team Baseline TC’s Dr. Rodolfo Curay and Ryan Kintanar, 8-4.

In the B- category, barging into the round of 16 are the pairs of Elizer Yac and Kit Castro of Baseline TC, who dominated the Henry-Nino Beltran tandem also of Baseline TC, 8-2, and the Papa Rey-Domino Cobarde pair of Team Talamban TC, who ousted the Baseline TC pair of Poloy Atillo and Nestor Senior, 8-6.

In the C+ division, the Baseline TC pair of John Cabada and Larry Pescadero zoomed into the quarterfinal round after surviving a closely fought match to eliminate the Talamban TC duo of Chong Goy and Joel Tambok.

Cabada and Pescadero were tied in a 7-7 draw by Tambok and Chong Goy before the host team’s representatives rocketed off to a 7-5 victory in the tiebreaker to win the match and advance into the next round.

A total of 13 teams coming from different parts of Cebu are seeing action in the tilt, which also features the C- category and is organized by the Baseline Tennis Club headed by its president (Ret.)
