I've been a sports columnist since 1994. First, in The Freeman newspaper under "Tennis Is My Game." Then, starting in 2003, with Sun.Star Cebu under the name "Match Point." Happy reading!


  1. Hi John,
    I can scarcely believe it myself but once upon a time, I was a decent tennis player. I had a buddy with whom I’d play tennis with almost everyday, he was Nories Baker (a play on Boris Becker and the bakeshop right across the tennis court in our subdivision in Polomolok, South Cotabato) while I was Jimmy Swaggart (a play on Jimmy Connors–I had a two-handed backhand–and the evangelist I listened to at that time, who sadly went down because of a sex scandal).

    But then football took me away from the court. One of these days, I just might pick up a racquet again.

  2. Hi Max!

    Hahaha… Nories Baker versus Jimmy Swaggart! Those are very funny names.

    We should get together and play tennis soon. Thanks
