CONTROVERSY erupted just a day after Alex Eala’s trailblazing run to the French Open girls juniors semifinals as her parents denied a claim by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) that it had backed the tennis rising star with millions in financial support.
The government’s sports agency posted congratulatory messages on its social media pages after Eala age 15, became the first Filipina – and just the second from the country after Felix Barrientos – to reach as far as the semifinals of a grand slam
The post, however, drew the ire of Eala’s parents Michael and Rizza owing to claims that the PSC had extended the teenager millions in support, including P3 million for her European training leading up to the Australian Open where she won the girls doubles.
