Huey pulls out of Malaysia SEA Games

Treat Huey, the tennis doubles specialist who delivered multiple gold medals for the Philippines in the Southeast Asian Games, won’t defend his mixed doubles title with Denise Dy in the biennial Games slated next month in Kuala Lumpur.

Treat Huey
Tom Carrasco, head of the Philippines’ SEA Games Task Force, confirmed the Filipino-American’s withdrawal Monday.

It marks the second straight time that Huey, ranked No. 22 in the world in men’s doubles, won’t play for the country, apparently in support of tennis patron Jean Henri Lhuillier and Philippine Tennis Association (Philta) vice president Randy Villanueva.

Huey also missed the Davis Cup in Bangkok two months ago.

Being eyed to replace the 31-year-old Davis Cup veteran in the nine-man PH tennis delegation is junior ace AJ Lim.

Lhuillier and Villanueva are embroiled in a leadership tug-of-war with the group of long-time tennis chief Buddy Andrada.
