After 12 years of waiting, one of the sporting world’s most popular prizes has returned to the United States of America. The Davis Cup, an annual tennis event that pits all the world’s countries against each other, was won last weekend by names you know well: Andy Roddick, James Blake and the Bryan twins, Bob and Mike. Among the many articles written about their victory, I like best the following stories: the personal blog of the Bryan twins, Jon Wertheim’s “Davis Cup Notebook,” and Steve Tignor’s “DC Wrap.”

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. Yes, I’m happy that the U.S. has finally won the Davis Cup. It had been a long drought for the Americans, 12 awaited years, that is. What’s up with Roddick’s feet? They sure look small. haha! I like Blake; he’s cool.

  2. You’re partly right. I have a dual citizenship. I regained back my Philippine citizenship last year. Don’t know what the future holds, but sure would love to retire in Cebu someday. Maybe start some kind of a sport clinic for underprivileged kids.

  3. Bebot, with your athletic background and all-out passion for sports, starting a training program here will be a God-sent gift to Cebu… Again, see you here next month!
