2016 WRT Atlanta Open - Preview

The World Racquetball Tour (WRT) is back in action this weekend with the 2016 Atlanta Open. Alejandro Cardona and Jake Bredenbeck are the #1 and #2 seeds, respectively, but also in the draw is multiple WRT event winner Polo Gutierrez, as the 7th seed. Thus, Gutierrez and Bredenbeck are on track for a showdown in the quarterfinals. Also notable in the draw are the 3-5 seeds, David Horn, Andree Parrilla, and Jaime Martell, respectively.

They’ll also be playing doubles in Georgia, and Cardona has teamed up with Teobaldo Fumero, who’s something of a doubles specialist on the right side. They are the top seeds, but 2nd seeds David Horn and Andree Parrilla will be sure to give them a run for the title.

You can view the action live from Lilburn starting with the quarterfinals at 10 AM Saturday morning via the WRT website.
