2015 WRT Monterrey Open - Quarterfinals

Edson Martinez has advanced to his first semi-final on the World Racquetball Tour (WRT), as he beat Jordy Alonso, 13-15, 15-9, 11-5, in the quarterfinals of the Monterrey Open in Monterrey, Mexico. In the semis, Martinez will play 3rd seed Andree Parrilla, who was a winner over Nicolai Miramontes, 15-4, 15-9.

A new WRT champion will be crowned on Sunday, as Jaime Martell defeated Anthony Herrera, who was the only quarterfinalist in Monterrey who had won a WRT event previously. Martell defeated Herrera, 15-9, 7-15, 11-5. Martell will play Christian Longoria, who was a winner over Rodrigo Montoya after Montoya suffered a knee injury that prevented him from finishing what was a match of two World Junior Champions, as Longoria is the Boy’s U16 World Junior Champion and Montoya the Boy’s U18 World Junior Champion.

You can see matches live from Monterrey via the WRT website. The semi-finals will be at 5 PM and 6 PM Saturday and the final at noon Sunday.
