Tempo - - Sports -

The top seeded pair of Mar­ian Jade and Jella Ca­pado­cia crushed the tan­dem of Bianca Pica and Cheli Cruz, 6-1, 6-0, yes­ter­day to se­cure their spot in the quar­ter­fi­nals of the 36th Philippine Columbian As­so­ci­a­tion (PCA) Open at the PCA in­door shell-clay courts in Paco, Manila.

“Kabisado na namin ang galaw namin sa loob ng court but there’s still some room for im­prove­ment. Hope­fully, ma-malimit pa namin yung er­rors sa next game namin,” said four-time ladies’ sin­gles champ Mar­ian Jade.

The Ca­pado­cia sib­lings meet Tracy Lla­mas and Me­lanie Faye Di­zon in the next round. The Lla­mas-Di­zon pair out­lasted Aileen Ro­gan and her Ja­panese part­ner Noriko Ya­mada, 7-6 (5), 6-3.

Clarice Pat­ri­mo­nio and Amer­i­can Madi­son Kane proved too classy for Gene Me­len­dez and and Mary San Jose, scor­ing a breezy 6-0, 6-0 win.

The No. 2 tan­dem of Pat­ri­mo­nio and Kane bat­tles Jed Aquino and Jenni Di­zon in the quar­ter­fi­nals.
