LPRT Rankings - Csuk #3

Some significant changes in the latest Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) rankings, as Krystal Csuk has reached a career high at #3 moving ahead of Kerri Wachtel, who's now in 4th. These rankings were done after the US Open earlier this month, which had a significant number of upsets and that's changed the LPRT top 20 considerably.

However, the #1 & #2 LPRT players remain the same: Paola Longoria, winner of the US Open earlier this month, is #1 and Rhonda Rajsich, US Open runner-up, is #2.

Susy Acosta has also moved up, as she moved into 5th ahead of Adrienne Fisher, who's now 6th, and Kristen Bellows now in 7th. Jennifer Saunders remains in 8th.

Rounding out the top 10 are Cristina Amaya in 9th and veteran Cheryl Gudinas in 10th. That's despite early exits from the US Open by both Amaya and Gudinas.

Good US Open performances have moved a few players up in the 10-20 ranking spots, including putting three players into the top 20 who weren't there before - one ever before, as Maria Paz Muñoz is ranked 20th after reaching the quarter finals in Minneapolis earlier this month.

The other two players are Veronica Sotomayor - US Open semi-finalist - who is ranked 17th and Jackie Paraiso - US Open quarter finalist and former women's #1 - who's at 19. Sotomayor hasn't been in the top 20 since 2010 and Paraiso hasn't been there in at least 6 years.

The next LPRT event is the Albierto Mexicano de Racquetas in Toluca, Mexico near Mexico City, from November 2-4. This is a Grand Slam event and will have the most prize money on the LPRT this season, even more than the US Open.
