Winning may be a habit for Cherry Rondina, but the Creamline 1’s ace is not taking things lightly ahead of the BVR on Tour second leg beginning on Thursday in Santa Ana, Cagayan.

“Ako honestly, kinakabahan pa rin ako. Kahit naglalaro ako. Kahit kilala ko yung mga kalaro ko. Sobrang kinakabahan ako kasi kahit anytime, puwedeng magbago yung ihip ng hangin, yung laro. Like hindi mo malalaman yung kakalabasan ng laro mo,” said Rondina during a television interview with “The Game” Monday night.

“Ayun, stick to our goal. Focus lang and nag-eenjoy lang kami,” the four-time BVR champion added.

Living up to the billing as heavy favorites, Rondina and Bernadeth Pons played their usual game to rule the first leg on Monday, having won all of their six matches, without dropping a set in the bubble.

Without a doubt, Rondina’s chemistry with Pons worked wonders. Started as the tandem known as “SiPons” in 2017, the ertswhile collegiate rivals are always on the same page to be successful in every tournament.

“Same goals and alam mo iyon. Pareho kaming mag-trabaho. Pareho naming ibinubuhos yung commitment namin sa lahat ng kino-commit namin,” said Rondina.

“Hindi mahirap kasi siguro, ginugusto lang namin lahat,” she added.
