Lhuillier lauds Gonzales
LONG-TIME tennis patron and Unified Tennis Philippines President Jean Henri Lhuillier lauded the recent victory of national tennis player Ruben Gonzales at the ATP Challenger Circuit after winning the Republica Dominicana Open with doubles partner American Reese Stalder.
..“I am extending my heart- felt congratulations to Ruben for this achievement, just to be able to compete regularly in the professional tennis circuit is by itself is impressive, more so that he has been very competitive in his event, he has been representing the country in the Davis Cup and SEA Games, the last of which he and partner Treat Huey won the doubles gold even in 2019,” said Lhuillier.
Lhuillier added: “It was doubly impressive since Ruben and his partner were not seeded at all but right from the start of the tournament beat the 3rd seeded team. He has the heart of a champion and I take pride in knowing Ruben personally .I look forward to seeing him don the national colors anew in the near future.”
Gonzales expressed his appreciation to JHL, “It was a tough fight for us and I am happy that we won the finals, and I am happy too that our Philippine tennis benefactor Jean Henri found the time to recognize our achievement, now I am looking ahead to another opportunity to play for the Philippines.”
