The latest LPRT rankings have many changes but not at the top

Paola Longoria continues to be the #1 player the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT), which released its latest rankings on Tuesday. Rhonda Rajsich is also steady at #2 despite not having only quarter final and Round of 16 finishes so far this season.

But Susana Acosta is the new #3 player switching players with fellow Mexican Samantha Salas who's now #4 after missing the first two LPRT event due to a foot injury. Cheryl Gudinas has also missed the first two events with a foot injury and has dropped from #5 to #7.

Cristina Amaya has replaced Gudinas at #5, which is up four spots from her previous #9 ranking. Fifth is Amaya's highest career ranking, coming off her first career final appearance last weekend in Toluca, Mexico.

Maria Jose Vargas, who was a semi-finalist for the second time this season on the weekend, also moved up and is now #6.

Adrienne Haynes and Grace Hughes have dropped to 8th and 9th respectively.

Veronica Sotomayor rounds out the top 10 followed by veterans Da'monique Davis, Jennifer Saunders, Kerri Wachtel, Krystal Csuk and T. J. Baumbaugh, in spots 11-15.

Maria Paz Muñoz is up one place to 17th, ahead of former #1 Jackie Paraiso. Linda Scales is back in the top 20 at 18th followed by Hailey Miller and Frédérique Lambert, who cracks the top 20 for the first time.

The US Open is the next LPRT event and it runs October 2-6, 2013 in Minneapolis. Forty two players are entered and forty one of them will have sights on ending Paola Longoria's winning streak, while she will be trying to win her fourth US Open title.
