2010 Pan American Championships - Thursday round up

Thursday was not a good day for 4th seeded Canadians, as both Vincent Gagnon and Brandi Jacobson Prentice lost their quarter final matches at the 23rd Pan American Championship in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Ricardo Monroy of Bolivia defeated Gagnon, 15-10, 15-7, while veteran Claudine Garcia of the Dominican Republic took out Jacobson Prentice, 5-15, 15-12, 11-10.

The top seeds - Mexicans Paola Longoria and Gil De Los Rios - advanced to the semi-finals by winning their matches in two straight games. Longoria defeated Cristina Cordova of Ecuador, 15-3, 15-3, while De Los Rios beat Fernando Rios of Ecuador, 15-10, 15-7.

It was a doubly good day for Garcia, who also won in women's doubles with her partner Yira Portes as the Dominican Republicans defeated Cristina Cordova and Maria Paz Munoz (Ecuador), 15-12, 15-6, in the quarter finals. Next up for them will be the Canadian team of Frédérique Lambert and Geneviève Brodeur, and the Canadians defeated the Guatemalan team of Lucy Zachrisson and Marie Gomar, 15-4, 15-10.
