2014 United Healthcare US Open - LPRT Preview

The Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) draws - singles and doubles - for the 2014 United Healthcare US Open are available now, and we have them for you below.

A few matches of note: Krystal Csuk, a former top 5 player, is in the draw, and she's on track to meet 5th seed Cristina Amaya in the Round of 32, if she wins her qualifying round match. That would be a tougher that usual first round match for Amaya.

Also, Japanese veteran Maiko Sato would face 8th seed Da'monique Davis, if Sato wins her qualifying round match against Luisa Santillan. Finally, 13th seed Adrienne Haynes faces young Mexican Alexandra Herrera in the 32s. Both Davis and Haynes could be in tough to reach the Round of 16.

The LPRT is also playing a doubles competition in Minneapolis, and veterans Laura Fenton and Cheryl Gudinas will try to turn back the clock to win the event.

The top four seeds are 1st Rhonda Rajsich and Maria Jose Vargas, 2nd Paola Longoria and Veronica Sotomayor, 3rd Michelle Key and Frederique Lambert and 4th Susana Acosta and Jessica Parrila.

Longoria and Sotomayor are not usual partners, but their regular partners - Samantha Salas and Maria Paz Muñoz, respectively - aren't in Minneapolis, so they have teamed up. However, both like to play the left side, so they may not make the most natural team, because one of them will need to be on the right side.
