Pinoy here. Have any of you seen the flash flick, Maritess vs. the Superfriends? I thought it was hilarious.

Aonex 12-31-2004 11:24 AM

Yep, that Maritess skit was by Rex Navarette... really funny comedian.

VashTheStampede 12-31-2004 11:48 AM

I agree. I'll post it for the others who might not have seen it.

Just picky, wanted to change the Fed one, but didn't quite like the penguin one, so I stuck with a tennis sig.

yo, pinoy here.

What ever happen to Cecil Mamit? He is the only Filipino that actually played the circuit that I know of.

Why is that? Is tennis popular in the Philippines? There aren't if not all any Filipinos playing the pro circuit.

That's too bad. I've played with some Filipinos, and they really move around the court.

I'm not sure, but I think Eric Taino is Filipino. You guys can correct me if I'm wrong. The Junio bros. from Fresno State played some satellite events also.

^^ i think to answer your question, i believe it's the funding issue that prevents a lot of filipinos to play on the tour. i used to hit with a guy who played for the PI davis cup team a while ago and it was all about the lack of money to travel around and what not. there were a few pinoys that played college ball besides mamiit; rex calaunan played for UW a while ago.

Noelle 01-18-2005 06:41 PM

What about the problem with visas? I think it might be hard for a person with a Filipino passport to get a visa just to be able to play at tennis tournaments around the world.

Was Rex Calaunan actually ranked like Mamiit? Did he even play the pro circuit? I think Mamiit is the only Filipino that actually made pro after college. I recall seeing him play against Paul Goldstein.

Mamit was even endorsed by Adidas and Wilson. Is it that difficult to get endorsement in the Philippines or companies such as Nike, Adidas, Wilson ignore prospects in the Philippines and instead look elsewhere in other Asian countries such as Japan, India, China or even Korea?
