2014 PASO Sports Festival - Doubles Elimination Draws

The elimination draws for doubles at the Pan American Sport Organization (PASO) Sports Festival racquetball in Guadalajara, Mexico are out, and we've got them for you below.

In Women's Doubles, Maria Jose Vargas and Véronique Guillemette of Argentina are the top seeds, and they will probably need to defeat either the American team of Rhonda Rajsich and Devon Pimentelli or the Colombian team of Cristina Amaya and Carolina Gomez in the semi-finals to reach the final.

On the bottom of the draw, the other semi-final will probably between Veronica Sotomayor and Maria Paz Muñoz of Ecuador and Jenny Daza and Adriana Riveros of Bolivia, although the young Mexican team of Alexandra Herrara & Ximena Gonzalez could surprise the Bolivians in the quarters.

Alvaro Beltran and Javier Moreno, former World Champions, look good to win in Men's Doubles. They'll need to defeat the Panama team of Ricardo Delgado & Yasser Aguilar in the 16s and then either Tim Landeryou and Pedro Castro of Canada or Conrado Moscoso and Mario Mercado of Bolivia in the quarters.

Their semi-final opponent is uncertain, as the other matches on the top side of the draw could go either way. Joaquin Solera and Andrés Aviles Solera of Costa Rica are playing Edwin Galicia and Manolo Sandoval of Guatemala - previous bronze medalists at the World Championships and Argentines Fernando Kurzbard and Pablo Kurzbard are playing an athletic Cuban team of Noslen Jimenez and Maikel Mollet Suarez.

There's uncertainty on the bottom of the draw, but the podium spots will likely go to either the Americans Jake Bredenbeck and Jose Diaz, Colombians Sebastian Franco and Alejandro Herrera, who are the World Champions, or the Ecuador team of Fernando Rios and Jose Daniel Ugalde.
