Team Philippines 1’s Cherry Rondina and Bernadeth Pons suffered set back at the start of their 2021 Asian Senior Beach Volleyball Championships campaign at Bang Tao Beach in Phuket, Thailand on Wednesday.

Rondina and Pons bowed to Japan 3’s Asami Shiba and Takemi Nishibori, 13-21, 22-20, 15-12, in a match that lasted for 52 minutes.

Rondina and Pons were dominant to start the match but could not sustain it after losing a close game in sets two and three.

The Visayan pair will plunge back to action later in the day in hopes to registering their first win in Pool B.
