I heard a few year's back that two daughters of Alvin Patrimonio were training in the US to become tennis players! Finally, the time has come for Alice Clarice Patrimonio to come into her own, as she campaigns for our country in this year's SEA Games in Indonesia. Her elder sister, Christine was not able to compete.
For now, Alice reached as far as the semifinals, falling to the #1 seed from Thailand, Leertchawarn Noppawan, who is actually seeded around the 150s in the WTA Tour. She's only 19 years old so we hope that she goes to as many tournaments in the ITF so that she can progress even further in the main WTA draw. Now wouldn't that be really cool?!
