Paola Longoria and Rhonda Rajsich - the top two Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) players - ended the hopes of Kristen Bellows and Cheryl Gudinas to re-live past glory at the Battle at the Alamo tournament in San Antonio, Texas, as they soundly beat the former top 4 players in the semi-finals Saturday night.
Longoria defeated Gudinas, 11-1, 11-1, 11-3, while Rajsich beat Bellows 11-4, 11-1, 11-1. Longoria's only given up 24 points in nine games (2.67 pts per game) in advancing to the final, while Rajsich has surrendered 33 points in nine games (3.67).
Longoria will be looking to win her 6th title of the WPRO season, and 7th consecutive WPRO win against Rajsich, who last beat Longoria in Stockton in May 2011.
