My hubby used to play tennis regularly. I’m very proud to say that he’s good at that particular sport, aside from badminton of course. He is a single-backhand player which, according to him, finds other tennis players quite difficult to do. That maybe the reason I got hooked in watching grandslam tennis games. And also the main reason I want OMB to be a great Filipino tennis player someday and follow the footsteps of big stars like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Nothing’s wrong with dreaming (super)big for your child, right? 🙂

In the recent Australian Cup in Melbourne, a first filipino player won a championship in the junior boys double. Francis Casey “Nino” Alcantara teamed up with Cheng Peng Hsieh of China and played really well in the finals. They performed their best and came out victoriously.

I say, let’s talk about him. This is another achievement for our country. I am so proud of him. I hope this is not Nino’s first and last win. It’s my dream to see him play in the men’s single someday. I cheer for Federer and fanatically watch every grandslam, I definitely wouldn’t miss watching a Filipino play tennis in the international scenes. Hurrah to you Nino!
