MANILA--Arthur Craig Pantino hardly had a hard time fending off compatriot Jose Antonio Tria, 6-2, 6-1, to earn his second straight ITF Juniors boys' singles title in their finals rematch at the PHINMA - PSC International Juniors Tennis Championship 2 at the Manila Polo Club last Sunday.
After beating Tria in the PHINMA - PSC International Juniors Tennis Championship 1 in the preceding week, top seed Pantino once again asserted his mastery in the week-long event organized by the Philippine Tennis Association (PHILTA) as he only dropped a total of 13 games in the course of the whole event.
