WPRO - Longoria wins Christmas Classic

Paola Longoria defeated Rhonda Rajsich for the second consecutive time Sunday, as she won the final of the Christmas Classic in Arlington, Virginia - the fourth event of the Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) tour. Longoria won in three straight games, 11-7, 11-3, 11-3.

The win gives Longoria a 2-1 advantage over Rajsich this season. Also, Longoria may regain the #1 WPRO ranking with the win. She was #1 at the start of the season, but Rajsich went ahead of her after winning the first two WPRO events, including the US Open in October.

In the women's Open division, Adrienne Fisher defeated Krystal Csuk, 15-5, 15-14 in the final. Fisher and Csuk got to the final by defeating two Japanese players.

Fisher beat Maiko Sato, 15-2, 15-10, in one semi-final while Csuk defeated Etsuko Noda, 15-7, 15-5, in the other.
