PARC - 2013 Pan American Championships - Doubles results

They are down the semi-finals in the doubles competitions at the 2013 Pan American Championships in Cali, Colombia, and there have been no real surprises so far.

Mexicans Javier Moreno and Polo Gutierrez got through to the semis, but did need a tie-breaker to defeat the Bolivian team of Kadim Carrasco and Ricardo Monroy, winning 15-7, 9-15, 11-0. They will face Colombians Sebastian Franco and Juan Herrera in the semis, as the Colombians beat the Venezuela team of Cesar Castillo and Cesar Castillo, 15-6, 7-15, 11-3.

It's the USA versus Costa Rica on the other side of the draw, as Jansen Allen and Marco Rojas (USA) defeated Edwin Galicia and Pedro Manolo Sandoval (Guatemala), 15-9, 15-10 in the quarters, and Felipe Camacho Martin and Joaquin Solera (Costa Rica) beat Daniel Maggi and Fernando Kurzbard (Argentina), 15-12, 6-15, 11-8.

While three of the four men's quarter-final matches went tiebreaker, none of the women's quarters did. Mexican Paola Longoria and Samantha Salas beat Costa Ricans Melania Sauma Masis & Sofia Soley Saborio (Costa Rica), 15-5, 15-2. Next up for the Mexicans will be Chileans Angela Grisar and Carla Muñoz, who defeated Maria Cespedes and Claudine Garcia (Dominican Rep.), 15-6, 15-13, in the quarters.

America and Bolivia face off in the other semi-final, as in the quarters Americans Sharon Jackson and Rhonda Rajsich defeated Colombians Cristina Amaya and Carolina Gomez, 15-13, 15-3, while Bolivians Jenny Daza and Adriana Riveros won against Venezuelans Paola Guerra and Mariana Tobon, 15-3, 15-5.
