2014 PASO Sports Festival - Doubles Results Round of 16

Day one of the doubles elimination round is almost done at the Pan American Sport Organization (PASO) Sports Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico, and few surprises so far.

In a battle of two young teams, Guatemalans Maria Renee Rodriguez and Ana Gabriela Martinez defeated Melania Sauma Masis and Sofia Soley of Costa Rica, 15-12, 15-10, and will play the top seeds Maria Jose Vargas and Véronique Guillemette of Argentina on Wednesday in the quarterfinals.

The other quarterfinal on the top of the draw will be as expected with Americans Rhonda Rajsich and Devon Pimentelli going up against Colombians Cristina Amaya and Carolina Gomez for a place on the podium and chance to make the final.

Rajsich and Pimentelli defeated Maria Cespedes and Merynanyelly Delgado Araujo of the Dominican Republic, 15-10, 15-10, and Amaya and Gomez beat Maria Paula Posada and Andrea Garcia of Nicaragua, 15-8, 15-0.

On the bottom of the draw, Veronica Sotomayor and Maria Paz Muñoz of Ecuador will play Canadians Danielle Drury and Valerie Fallu, who were winners over Paula Padilla and Lissel Padilla of Honduras, 15-2, 15-4, in the quarters on Wednesday, and Jenny Daza and Adriana Riveros of Bolivia will face the young Mexican team of Alexandra Herrara and Ximena Gonzalez in the quarters.

Alvaro Beltran and Javier Moreno, former World Champions, won their first match in Men's Doubles, as they beat the Panama team of Ricardo Delgado and Yasser Aguilar, 15-7, 15-2, and will face Bolivians Conrado Moscoso and Mario Mercado, who beat Tim Landeryou and Pedro Castro of Canada, 15-5, 15-11, in the quarters.
