All Mexico LPRT doubles final at 2015 US Open

The Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) doubles final at the 2015 United Healthcare US Open in Minneapolis will be an all Mexico affair, as #1 seeds Paola Longria and Samantha Salas defeated 4th seeds Susana Acosta and Jessica Parrilla, 15-5, 9-15, 11-5, in one semi-final and the young team of Alexandra Herrera and Monserrat Mejia knocked off 3rd seeds Michelle Key and Frédérique Lambert in the other semi-final, 13-15, 15-9, 11-7.

How young are Herrera and Meija? They're teenagers. Herrera, a left-hander, was a double gold medalist in Girl's U18 at last year's World Junior Championships, winning in singles and doubles, while Mejia won gold in Girl's U14 doubles.

They've beaten the #2 and #3 seeds to get to the final, but Saturday they'll be up against the three time reigning World Champions. The test doesn't get any tougher.

The final will be 4 PM CDT Saturday.
