2014 WRT Juarez Open - Landa & Bredenbeck through to final

Only one small upset in the quarterfinals and semi-finals Saturday at the World Racquetball Tour (WRT) Juarez Open in Juarez, Mexico, as Jake Bredenbeck and Alejandro Landa worked their way to Sunday's final.

Bredenbeck, the 8th seed, took out Coby Iwaasa in the quarters, 15-5, 15-7, and then beat fellow American David Horn in a tie-breaker, 13-15, 15-8, 11-4, which was a slight upset as Horn was the 5th seed.

Sixth seed Landa came through the bottom of the draw, defeating Gerardo Guevara, 15-3, 15-7, in the quarterfinals, and 7th seed Javier Moreno in the semi-finals, 15-7, 15-13.

Bredenbeck will play in his second consecutive WRT final Sunday, as he was also a finalist in the Chile Open, where he lost to Polo Gutierrez.
