WPRO - Ektelon WPRO World Championships - Results from 16s

As expected the closest match in the Round of 16 at the Ektelon Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) World Championships in Stockton, California was 8th seed Angela Grisar versus 9th seed Jennifer Saunders, which went the distance with Grisar coming back from two games to one down to win in the fifth, 8-11, 11-7, 6-11, 11-1, 11-4. Grisar will play top seed Rhonda Rajsich in the quarter finals.

Rajsich defeated Krystal Csuk, 11-2, 11-1, 11-9, in the 16s. Most matches in the 16s were three game straight victories to the higher seed.

Notable though is Aubrey O'brien forcing fourth seed Kerri Wachtel to extra points in each of their games, as Wachtel won 12-10, 12-10, 12-10.
