LPRT - 2014 New Jersey Open Preview

The Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour's (LPRT's) New Jersey Open is on this weekend in Warren, N.J., and the draw is stacked with talent, as 19 of the LPRT's top 20 players are there. Thus, there will be plenty of good matches.

That should start right off the bat, as Veronica Sotomayor takes on Jessica Parrilla and Aubrey Kirch goes up against Michelle Key in an All-American contest.

It does get any easier for the winners of those matches, as Sotomayor or Parrilla will likely take on Frédérique Lambert and Kirch or Key will be up against Cristina Amaya.

Of course, LPRT #1 Paola Longoria will try to win another event and push her winning streak just a little further. Rhonda Rajsich - LPRT #2 - would dearly love to end that streak, but last time out she didn't get the chance, as LPRT #3 Maria Jose Vargas beat her in the semi-finals. They could meet in the semis again in New Jersey.

All in all it should be an exciting weekend of racquetball in Warren, and you can see some of the action from the New Jersey Open via the LPRT Network.
