2010 IRF World Championships - Rajsich successfully defends title

Rhonda Rajsich has captured her second World Championship, successfully defending the title she won in Ireland two years ago, as she defeated Mexican Nancy Enriquez in the women's singles final at the 15th International Racquetball Federation (IRF) World Championships in Seoul, South Korea.

Rajsich joins Canadians Christie Van Hees and Heather Stupp as two time World Champions and is one behind fellow Americans Michelle Gould and Cheryl Gudinas, who each have three Worlds titles.

The loss ended Enriquez's fine run through the competition as she was seeded 7th and had to defeat Canadian Jennifer Saunders and Gudinas to reach the final. Perhaps these performances will translate into victories on the Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) tour, where Enriquez is only ranked 41st.

The other finals are still to come on Tuesday.
