2015 WRT Suncoast Open Semi-finals

Third seed David Horn upset 2nd seed Jake Bredenbeck, 15-12, 11-15, 11-8, in the semi-final of the World Racquetball Tour (WRT) Suncoast Open in Sarasota, Florida, Saturday, and he’ll face WRT #1 Alejandro Cardona in the final, as Cardona outlasted Andree Parrilla, 4-15, 15-6, 11-6, in the other semi-final.

Cardona and Horn have been the winners of the last four WRT events with Cardona winning three of them, including the most recent Atlanta Open last weekend, and Horn the other, when he defeated Cardona in the final of the San Luis Open in August.

In their tie-breaker, Cardona took an early lead on Parrilla at 4-2, and he never relinquished that, although Parrilla was down five points at 8-3, he fought back to 8-6, but that was as much as Parrilla could get as Cardona held him at six and scored that last three points to win the game and match.

The match winner was a Parrilla serve return skip off a Cardona Z serve to Parrilla’s backhand on a second serve.

The singles final will be noon on Sunday with the doubles final to follow at 1 PM. You can follow the action via the WRT website.
