2014 PASO Sports Festival - Singles Results Round of 32

The first round of the Men's and Women's Singles competition at the Pan American Sport Organization (PASO) Sports Festival in Guadalajara, Mexico is nearing completion, and there are few surprises so far.

In Women's Singles, the Costa Rican women has significant results, as Sofia Soley upset Hawira Rojas of Bolivia, 15-11, 15-11, and Melania Sauma went tie-breaker with Lissel Padilla of Honduras, winning 15-8, 12-15, 11-7. Soley's next opponent will be Veronica Sotomayor of Ecuador while Sauma will face Colombian Cristina Amaya.

Also on Tuesday, there will be a rematch of one of the dramatic matches from the World Championships in June, when Maria Paz Muñoz of Ecuador meets Christine Richardson of Canada. At Worlds, Richardson came back from a game down to defeat Muñoz 11-10 in the tie-breaker.

Monday, Muñoz defeated Paula Padilla of Honduras, 15-1, 15-4, and Richardson beat Carolina Gomez of Colombia, 15-12, 15-6.

On the men's side, no surprises so far. One of the matches we highlighted earlier is going to happen on Tuesday, when Conrado Moscoso of Bolivia - the silver medalist from the World Championships in June - will play Fernando Rios of Ecuador in the 16.

On Monday, Moscoso defeated Christian Wer of Guatemala, 15-12, 15-4, and Rios had a close win over Noslen Jimenez of Cuba, 15-13, 15-14.

Also, there will be two intra-country showdowns on Tuesday in the Round of 16 as Colombians Sebastian Franco and Alejandro Herrera will face off and Canadians Samuel Murray and Coby Iwaasa will play each other, so only one Colombian or Canadian can make it to the podium.
