2012 US Open - Clouse, Lowe, Minor & Hanno through to CPRT semis

The two top seeds are still alive in the Classic Pro Racquetball Tour (CPRT) division at the 2012 United Healthcare US Open Racquetball Championships in Minneapolis, but #1 seed and three time defending champion needed five games to stay that way, as Woody Clouse was pushed to the limit by Doug Ganim.

Ganim, a former IRF World Champion in doubles, was up two games to one on Clouse, but the reigning champion dug in and pulled out the victory, 9-5, 7-9, 6-9, 9-3, 9-5.

Second seed and 2008 US Open Champion Jimmy Lowe won his match in four games against Jeff Stark, 9-4, 9-4, 6-9, 9-7.

Jeffery Hanno had an injury forfeit win over Cliff Swain, and Keith Minor beat Arturo Burrel, 9-4, 9-6, 4-9, 9-3.
