The last local contender, Lisa Raymond of Wayne, staged a strong finish but was sidelined by Jennifer Saberon of the Philippines, 6-2, 7-6 (11-9), in the quarterfinals of the USTA's Girls' International Grass Court Tennis Championship yesterday at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. Saberon, an incessant forecourt attacker, ended the 1-hour, 16-minute contest on the fifth match point with a curving serve that Raymond strained for and backhanded into the net. Off form and failing to repel Saberon's net charges until she was down 2-5 in the second set, Raymond suddenly began to show excellent strokework and rushed on to 5-5, fighting off two matchpoints - at 3-5 and 4-5. She had Saberon playing fearfully and cautiously as the score moved to 6-all.
