WPRO Ektelon World Championships, New Orleans - QFs

Adrienne Fisher spoiled Kerri Wachtel's return to the Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) tour, as 5th seeded Fisher defeated 4th seed Wachtel, 3-11, 6-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-5 in the quarter finals of the WPRO Ektelon World Championships in New Orleans. If Fisher advances to the final, she may get enough points to pass Wachtel in the rankings and finish the season in 4th, which would be a career best for her. There's less than 100 points separating them now.

But to do that Fisher will have to defeat top seed Paola Longoria in the semi-finals, as Longoria defeated Keely Franks, 11-3, 11-6, 11-3, in the quarters.

On the other side of the draw, Cheryl Gudinas and Rhonda Rajsich will face off in the semis, as Gudinas beat Samantha Salas, 12-10, 11-4, 12-10, and Rajsich defeated Vivian Gomez, 11-9, 11-4, 11-6.

The semi-finals will be played later on Saturday with the final on Sunday.
