WPRO - Ektelon World Championships - Early Results

The preliminary round of the 2011 LA Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) Ektelon World Championship in New Orleans is complete, and there were two five game matches and two upsets. Maiko Sato of Japan upset Keely Franks with one of the oddest scorelines you'll ever see: 11-9, 12-10, 0-11, 1-11, 12-10. Sato won the match, yet Franks outscored her by 15 points!

In the other five game match, Linda Scales defeated Mexican Jessica Parrilla, 6-11, 11-5, 9-11, 11-5, 11-4, while Sharon Jackson upset Da'monique Davis in three straight games, 11-6, 11-5, 11-4.

Play has begun in the Round of 16 and some of the matches will be streamed live over the IRT Network. The quarter finals and semi-finals will be played on Saturday and the final on Sunday at noon EDT.
