2015 WRT Monterrey Open - Preview

The World Racquetball Tour (WRT) is back in action this weekend in Monterrey, Mexico where the Monterrey Open is taking place. But Alejandro Cardona is missing from the draw. Cardona has won most of the WRT events the last half of this WRT season, although not the last one. As Jake Bredenbeck defeated Cardona in the final of the Kitsap Splat last month.

With Cardona’s absence, Bredenbeck is the top seed in Montrerrey with David Horn 2nd, Andree Parrilla 3rd and Anthony Herrera 4th. The top three seeds are also playing doubles with Horn and Parrilla the #1 seed and Bredenbeck and Christian Longoria #2 seeds.

Of note, veteran lefthander Javier Moreno is in the Monterrey draw as the 19th seed. If he wins his first match against Alan Natera, Moreno will face Parrilla - a player about half his age - in the Round of 16.

Look for live streaming from Monterrey via the WRT website starting with the quarterfinals Saturday at 10:00 AM. The semi-finals will be at 4 PM and 5 PM Saturday and the final at noon Sunday.
