RP vs. Japan in Davis Cup: We lost 0-5

NO, it wasn’t embarrassing. And the matches, especially the first two days and the doubles last Saturday, were close. We just couldn’t pull through. I spoke last night to Randy Villanueva, one of the officials from the Philippine Tennis Association (Philta) who helped our Davis Cup team, and he said the matches could have gone either way. But the fact is, the final score in the Davis Cup tennis tie between the Philippines and Japan is 5-0. The winners: Japan. Here’s a story from the Phil. Daily Inquirer… The below photos are courtesy of my good friend Dan Mastous, who flew in from Boston the day before and made it in time to watch all three days. Thanks, Dan!
