WPRO - Great Balls of Fire - Round of 32

The Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) is back in action this weekend with The Great Balls of Fire tournament - a Tier 1 WPRO event - in Miami, Florida. All the top 10 players are there with the exception of Brenda Kyzer. Kyzer is out with a foot injury, plantar facitis, and may require surgery.

The highlight of the potential quarter final matches is #1 Rhonda Rajsich facing the teen phenom and WPRO #10 Veronica Sotomayor. Sotomayor has defeated Rajsich twice this season, but in WPRO satellite events - the New Jersey Open and Harrisburg Shootout.

Play begins on Friday with the Round of 32 and Round of 16 matches. Then they'll also play two rounds on Saturday, quarter finals and semi finals, with the finals slated for Sunday.

Some matches will be streamed live over the internet at
