CDO honors tennis hero for Aussie Open feat




The City Government of Cagayan de Oro will be allocating P30,000 as cash incentive to Francis Casey “Niño” Alcantara, who made a remarkable tennis feat in 2009. 

Eighteen-year-old Francis Alcantara of Cagayan de Oro made Philippine sports history by being the first Filipino to win a grand slam title, performing splendidly in the junior doubles competition (with a Taiwanese co-player) of the 2009 Australian Open.

Better late than never…..
