After winning prestigious tournament, Pinay Alex Eala aims higher

Pinay tennis player Alex Eala is now aiming for a spot in the International Tennis Federation (ITF) World Juniors ranking weeks after stunning her opponents and winning the prestigious Les Petit 14 and Under European Championships in France several weeks ago. As a wild card entry in the contest, Eala soared to the top by winning all six of her games and beating Czech Linda Nozkova in comeback fashion.  The 13-year old stormed back from a one-set deficit and even trailed 3-5 in the third before coming up with the title. Not even Eala could believe that she could beat some of the world's best young tennis players, let alone go the tournament final.  "No, not at all like when I looked at the list sobrang daming gagaling na players, like the top of their country. I have seen them play before, they were really good I was actually expecting na mga hanggang quarters lang so ng nakarating ako ng finals grabe," she told ABS-CBN News' Dyan Castillejo in an interview. Her father, Michael was very much elated with the win, with some spectators and opponents even wondering if the sport is big in the Philippines.  Due to her impressive skill, Eala's opponents also thought that she trained abroad, but her grandfather and coach, Bob Maniego, politely ends that thought. The thirteen-year old rises in the wee hours of the morning to go to the gym for her strength and conditioning training before going to school, where she serves as class president in Colegio San Agustin. After school, Eala continues her grind by undergoing addtional training with her Lolo Bob. Maniego and Eala's training have finally paid off, wherein the tennis prodigy started swinging rackets in international tournaments at eight years old. She now aims to join her brother, Miko, who is ranked in the ITF's Top 400 World Rankings. For Alex, 2018 will become a better year as she has a chance to crack the ITF World Juniors' rankings as she was invited by the French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli himself as a wild card entry in the French Open Juniors Tennis Qualifiers in Paris in May, Eala's first ITF tournament. With a report from Dyan Castillejo, ABS-CBN News......»»

Caram provides spark to revive Bolts’ playoff bid

BOCAUE --- "Never say die" has always been Ginebra's mantra. But on Sunday, it seemed like the tables were turned when Meralco got one over its rivals. Fighting for survival in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup, the Bolts clawed their way back from a 69-77 deficit in the fourth period to pull off a thrilling 84-82 victory to stay alive in the playoff race. "We want to be known as a team that doesn't give up even if we're undermanned," said Meralco playmaker Anjo Caram, who was one of the team's unsung heroes. Missing key guys like Ranidel de Ocampo, Jared Dillinger, and now, Cliff Hodge due to an MCL sprain, the diminutive guard proved to be the spark Meralco needed, firing a c...Keep on reading: Caram provides spark to revive Bolts’ playoff bid.....»»

Thompson, Kings quickly set sights on ROS after crucial loss to Bolts

BOCAUE --- Scottie Thompson would have wanted Ginebra to have formalized its entry to the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals with a victory over Meralco at the cavernous Philippine Arena on Sunday. Instead, the Bolts claimed the rematch of last year's finals, 84-82, to stay alive in the playoff race and complicate matters for the Gin Kings. "We really needed this game. This would have assured us in the playoffs, but because of what happened, we need to work harder in our next game," he said in Filipino. The do-it-all guard gave his all as always, and his efforts were mirrored in the stat sheets with 17 points, 13 rebounds, and five assists. Despite his gaudy numbers, T...Keep on reading: Thompson, Kings quickly set sights on ROS after crucial loss to Bolts.....»»

Book is Trump White House’s nightmare

What were they thinking? This is the thought that occurs to the reader when author Michael Wolff explains his almost unfettered access to the White House of US President Donald J. Trump in his book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" (Henry Holt and Company, New York, 2018, 321 pages). Wolff, an award-winning journalist and author, basically talked the Trump people into letting him hang around in the White House to write a book they assumed would be a positive view of the Trump presidency. They were wrong. "Shortly after Jan. 20, I took up something like a semipermanent seat of a couch in the West Wing," Wolff writes. "Since then I have conducted more than 200 interv...Keep on reading: Book is Trump White House’s nightmare.....»»
