The Racquetball Blog is predicting Paola Longoria to win the Great Balls of Fire tournament on the Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) tour. We think that Rajsich will have difficulty getting past Veronica Sotomayor in the quarters, and even if she does so will have another tough match in the semis.
Longoria as the third seed faces her toughest competition from Cheryl Gudinas Holmes, the second seed, to get to the final, but Longoria's had success against Gudinas Holmes, so we think she's a good bet to get to the final. And if she gets there, we think she'll win it.
On the men's side, we'll again go for the favorite, Kane Waselenchuk to win this weekend at the San Diego Open on the International Racquetball Tour (IRT). He's in form, having won last weekend in Seattle. Moreover, Alvaro Beltran, who's the player who matches up best against Waselenchuk currently, will have a tough road to the final, as both Jason Mannino and Jack Huczek are on his side of draw.
