2010 Pan American Championships - No surprises so far REDUX Part II

No surprises from the first day of elimination at the 23rd Pan American Championship in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. It continues to be a tough tournament for Andreas Herrera of Columbia as he lost in the Round of 16 to 4th seed Vincent Gagnon, 15-4, 15-5. But he's still in doubles with partner Francisco Gomez. They'll play Curtis Winter and Ward Myers of Puerto Rico on Thursday, as the Puerto Ricans upset the Ecuador team of Fernando Rios and Jose Daniel Alvarez, 15-11, 9-15, 11-8.

Two other upsets - according to the seeding - in the men's singles Round of 16 on Wednesday both involved Costa Rican players. One was positive and one negative. The positive one was Ivan Villegas's victory over Bolivian Carlos Keller Vargas, 15-11, 15-3, but the negative was Venezuelan Cesar Castro's defeat of Felipe Camacho, 15-7, 15-14.
