2015 LPRT Paola Longoria Experience - Preview

The Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) is back in action this weekend with the 2015 Paola Longoria Experience in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Most of the top 10 players are there, including LPRT #1 and the tournament title player, Paola Longoria.

Her rivals LPRT #2 Maria Jose Vargas and LPRT #3 Rhonda Rajsich, coming off a runner up performance at the US Open earlier this month, are in San Luis Potosi looking to upset Longoria. Longoria and partner Samantha Salas - the three time reigning World Champions - are also in the doubles draw, although Vargas and Rajsich are not.

Also curious in the doubles draw, Frédérique Lambert and Michelle Key are not playing together, after playing as a team most of the last season including at the US Open, where they were upset by Alexandra Herrera and Monserrat Meija, who also curiously are not playing together in San Luis Potosi.

Lambert is playing with Youngock Lee. Key is playing with Mejia. And Herrera is playing with Maria Renee Rodriguez.

Potential matches to look forward to, if they come about: Key’s quarterfinal against either Jessica Parrilla or Adriana Riveros, Lambert versus Samantha Salas, Da’monique Davis versus Alexandra Herrera, and Rodriguez versus Mejia.
