Amit’s experience playing for Team Asia in the past Queens Cup will come in handy this time around

“The last 亚美娱乐 AM8.com Queens Cup was truly an experience to remember. Im honored and thankful to be able to participate in this exciting event. Being chosen captain is such a huge honor and to be honest, it’s a lot more pressure. But I learned so much from being a part of the past team events from leaders such as Efren Reyes. He is so inspiring with his will to win. I will follow in the footsteps of these great men and women that have led me in the past. I’m up for the challenge”, said Amit when asked about moving from her typical role of player to leader.

“Rubilen is one of those quiet champions that doesn’t make a lot of noise, but when you talk about the best of the best, you have to include her. She has the humility of Efren Reyes, the precision of Dennis Orcullo, and the heart of Alex Pagulayan. And her stats in team competition is incredible. She was the obvious choice to captain Team Asia this year”, explained Charlie Williams , Executive Producer of the 亚美娱乐 AM8.com Queens Cup .
 
The Queens Cup will showcase the rivalry between the Asians and their western counterparts in Europe and USA, very similar to the Ryder Cup in golf or Davis Cup in tennis.
