LPRT Texas Open - Round of 16 results

Da'monique Davis provided the biggest upset in the Round of 16 at the Texas Open in Dallas on Friday, as she defeated the 6th seed Susana Acosta, 9-11, 11-7, 12-10, 12-10. Davis will play Kerri Wachtel in the quarters on Saturday, as Wachtel beat Keely Franks, 11-0, 11-8, 11-6 on Friday.

Samanatha Salas beat Adrienne Fisher, 11-1, 11-4, 11-1, which by the seedings was a bigger upset as Fisher was 5th seed. However, Salas was the #3 ranked women's pro player prior to the shoulder injury that caused her to miss most of last season and her ranking to fall, and Davis has yet to crack the top 10.

Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) #1 Paola Longoria beat Linda Scales in three games, 11-2, 11-7, 11-3, and LPRT #2 Rhonda Rajisch also had a three game victory, defeating Grace Hughes, 11-2, 11-6, 11-6.

Cheryl Gudinas won the rematch with Jennifer Saunders, although like their semi-final match in the World Championships earlier this month, it went to a tie-breaker before Gudinas won it, 11-4, 10-12, 6-11, 11-6, 11-6. Gudinas will play Rajsich on Saturday in the quarter finals.

Kristen Bellows also needed a tie-breaker to get past Cristina Amaya, winning 7-11, 11-4, 11-4, 2-11, 11-9. Bellows will face Longoria in the quarters.

The LPRT action will be streamed live beginning with the quarter finals on Saturday at 11 AM CDT. The semi-finals will begin at 5 PM and 6 PM CDT Saturday with the final on Sunday at 11 AM CDT.
