Sisi Rondina and Bernadeth Pons sent their heartfelt gratitude to the Pinoy beach volleyball fans who believed in their strength.

Rondina and Pons, collectively known as “SiPons” behind the net, bowed to Japan’s Sakurako Fujii and Minori Kumada, to end the country’s journey in the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Boracay Open Saturday at the White House Beach in Station 1, Boracay.

It might not be the result the loud Filipino supporters wanted, but the Philippines matched its best result in the tournament when Rondina and Dzi Gervacio finished fifth in the Manila Open 1-star in 2018.
