Something we didn't predict

Our idea of pitting our choice versus The Racquetball Blog readers choice for who will win the Outback Steakhouse Blast It! tournament this weekend in Fayetteville, N.C. has hit a little snag. The readers votes tied for Rhonda Rajsich and "Another player" indicating someone outside the top four seeds; there were 3 votes for each. We failed to predict this situation, so we don't have a rule for it.

Thus, we're going to let the readers have it both ways. This. Time.

Now, while it's possible that someone outside the top four will take the tournament, the last players to do so are Paola Longoria, who won this tournament last year, and Christie Van Hees, who won the Toronto tournament last year. However, neither of them are in Fayetteville.

Thus, it seems more likely to us that Rajsich, who won the last four tournaments of the 2007-08 season, will win rather than someone outside the top four.

Nevertheless, we at The Racquetball Blog predicted Cheryl Gudinas Holmes to get the title this weekend. And we're sticking to that.
