2010 World Professional Racquetball Championship - IRT Draw

The draw has been released for the second event of the International Racquetball Tour's (IRT's) 2010-2011 season - the World Professional Racquetball Championship in Cali, Columbia. It's a Grand Slam event, and the draw reflects some changes in the rankings as a result of the Kansas City Pro-Am.

The main changes are Rocky Carson moving up one spot to 2nd past Jack Huczek who drops to 3rd. Other changes in the top 10 are Ben Croft moving past Shane Vanderson into 5th and Jose Rojas moving into 9th, which puts Andy Hawthorne in 10th. Thus, Rojas is in the main draw of 16 while Hawthorne has go through qualifying.

Two names not in the draw that we would have liked to see are Alvaro Beltran, who got to the quarter finals last week in Kansas City after beating Huczek in the Round of 16, and Ricardo Monroy, who was a semi-finalist at the IRF World Championships last month.
