WPRO - Wilmington SFs

Rhonda Rajsich and Paola Longoria - the top seeds and #1 and #2 players on the Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) rankings - will meet in the final of the Rock 'N' Racquetball at the Coast tournament in Wilmington, North Carolina, on Sunday.

Curiously, both Rajsich and Longoria lost the first games of their semi-final matches. Rajsich dropped the opening game against Kerri Wachtel before coming back to win, 6-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-5. Similarly, Longoria was beaten by Cheryl Gudinas in game one of the other semi, but won 7-11, 11-0, 11-2, 11-2.

This will be Rajsich and Longoria's second meeting this season. Rajsich defeated Longoria in the US Open final last month. That win allowed Rajsich to overtake Longoria in the WPRO rankings and regain the #1 spot that she held for three years.
