WPRO - In Shape Sports, Stockton, California - Preview

The official draw for the In Shape Sports Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) Championships in Stockton, California, the penultimate event of the WPRO season, has been released and it's only a bit different from what we had for you a couple of days ago.

World Champion doubles partners Aimee Ruiz and Jackie Paraiso are playing each other in the first round. They are also in women's pro doubles together as the top seeds. That's an interesting event with two good international doubles teams: Paola Longoria and Samantha Salas from Mexico and Canadians Brandi Jacobson Prentice and Jennifer Saunders.

The Canadians are seeded 5th and will play Adrienne Fisher and Krystal Csuk, the 4th seeds, for a spot in the semis, where the winners will likely face Paraiso and Ruiz.

The singles schedule is set for two rounds on Friday, two on Saturday and then the final on Sunday. Doubles will begin on Saturday, and there are three rounds to play that day with the final on Sunday.

Thus, some players will have played quite a bit of racquetball come Saturday night. To come out victorious this weekend, you'll really need to be "In Shape".
