Cardona wins 2015 WRT San Diego Open

Alejandro Cardona defeated Anthony Herrera, 15-8, 15-0, to win the World Racquetball Tour (WRT) San Diego Open Sunday. They were close early in game one, but Cardona pulled ahead to lead 8-4, and was in control from there.

Cardona drove serve to both sides, and hit some great forehands that kept Herrera under pressure. Often it was all Herrera could do to just keep the ball in play, let alone make a good shot of his own.

Jake Bredenbeck and Sebastian Franco won the WRT doubles division by defeating Javier Mar and Alan Natera, 15-13, 6-15, 11-5, in the final. Mar and Natera were surprise finalists, as they were the 6th seeds, but knocked off the 3rd seeds Jaime Martell and Andree Parrilla in the quarterfinals and 2nd seeds Herrera and David Horn in the semi-finals to reach the final.

The next two WRT events are the Seattle Open February 19-22 and then the Pleasanton Open in Pleasanton, California February 17-March 1.
