Lim makes comeback

Former tennis prodigy Alberto Lim makes his much-awaited return to competitive play in the Brookside Open National Championships beginning Monday seeking no less than a victory in the first round to fuel a campaign against a slew of aces all primed for battle at the Brookside Hills courts in Cainta, Rizal.

Lim, who has dominated the junior circuit and vied in a number of Grand Slam junior events, reaching the second round of the Australian Open in 2017, went on a hiatus due to illness but has since worked his way back to form in time for this week’s championship backed by Rep. Michael John “Jack” Duavit.

But the former singles champion here will have his hands full in his first competition after the pandemic, facing off with Kenrik Ng at 9 a.m. in one of the matches kicking off the Group A tournament organized by Brookside Tennis Club president Allan del Castillo and held under the PPS-PEPP tennis program put up by Palawan Pawnshop president/CEO Bobby Castro.

Multi-titled Jose Maria Pague, Vicente Anasta, Nilo Ledama, Ronard Joven, Noel Damian, John Mari Altiche, John Tomacruz and Loucas Fernandez banner the 64-player draw that also includes Eric Tangub, Alexis Acabo, Alberto Villamor, Noel Salupado, Rollie Anasta, Chat Conta, Marco Macalintal and Elvin Geluz.

Also on tap are the Legends competitions slated on 5 to 7 May and the Juniors play on 11 to 14 May.
