LPRT - 2012 Christmas Classic Preview

The Ladies Pro Racquetball Tour (LPRT) is back in action this weekend with the 2012 Christmas Classic in Arlington, Virginia. A couple of the top 10 players are missing. LPRT #4 Kerri Wachtel and #8 Jennifer Saunders are not in Virginia, so the other players move up in seeding and Adrienne Fisher is the 4th seed.

Paola Longoria, the LPRT's top player, will again be looking to extend her winning streak, but she may have to go through her doubles team-mate Samantha Salas Solis in the quarter finals - although Salas Solis needs to defeat 9th seed T. J. Baumbaugh in the 16s to create that match up.

Other interesting matches to look for include 3rd seed Krystal Csuk versus Maria Jose Vargas, who won gold in U18 at last month's World Junior Championships, with the winner of that to face veteran Cheryl Gudinas. Also, Cristina Amaya versus Da'monique Davis will face off in the 16s.

Play begins on Friday morning with the Round of 32 matches. The Round of 16 matches will be Friday afternoon and evening, then the quarter finals and semi-finals will go on Saturday and final on Sunday. There will be live streaming from Seattle via the LPRT Network.
