Ayon kay PSTA president Antonio Jeff Tamayo Jr. tinatanaw siyang utang na loob ang suportang ibinigay ng Asian Soft Tennis Federation (ASTF) sa bansa para ma-organized ang dalawang international meet na aniya’y  “truly a fitting accolade which reflects our managerial expertise and hard work”.

“For this achievement, I am humbled and thankful for the cooperation of our friends at the Department of Education, Philippine Olympic Committee, Philippine Sports Commission, NCAA Mancom and the PSTA officers specially our president emeritus and former ASTF/ISTF vice president BGEN Dr. Antonio L. Tamayo,” aniya.
