cecil mamiit and eric taino grew up here in u.s. so i guess it was easier for them to compete in pro. players from the philippines needs funding from the corrupt government. i heard that there are lots of good filipino players but the problem is the cost of travel. china is emerging into the sports of tennis and i hope the we have some good filipino players that will emerge soon.

i talked to cecil and eric taino at the mercedes-benz cup here in l.a. last year, they're pretty nice guys to talk to. cecil still uses "po" when he talked to my dad

go pinoys!
