Also of note in Denver

The big matches today are the semi-finals at the Motorola Racquetball World Championships in Denver between Rocky Carson and Jason Mannino on one side and Alvaro Beltran and Kane Waselenchuk on the other (they'll serve it up at 2:30 and 4:00, respectively). However, there are some interesting match-ups in the Open division as well, where they'll play the quarter finals this afternoon and the semi-finals tonight.

Perhaps the most interesting match will be Travis Woodbury, number 18 on the International Racquetball Tour (IRT) rankings, against Jose Rojas, the American teenager who qualified for the IRT main draw, something Woodbury failed to do.

Rojas lost to Beltran in the main draw's Round of 16, while Woodbury was beaten by Polo Gutierrez (IRT #19) in the last round of qualifying.

Follow the bouncing ball....
