Obituary – Randy Villanueva
The Asian tennis community is mourning the loss of former Vice President of Philippine Tennis Association (Philta) Mr. Randy Villanueva, who left for heavenly abode.
As former Vice President of PHILTA and long-time Davis Cup administrator for Philippines, Villanueva helped revive the popularity of tennis that saw the PH Davis Cup team rise to the elite Group I in the Asia Oceania Zone.
Former PH Davis Cup non-playing captain Roland Kraut also shared his unforgettable memories with Villanueva including his first stint as Davis Cup captain in 2014.
“Will miss this. Good times. Rest well. Prayers to the family,” Kraut wrote on his Facebook.
Asian Tennis Family will also deeply miss the loss of an experienced tennis enthusiast and tennis administrator. Many of the friends, ATF members and staff, who had pleasure of working with Randy, would remember him as a cheerful, hardworking and a true professional gentleman.
May his soul rest in peace.
