WRT - 2016 Rocky Moutain Open Preview

The World Racquetball Tour (WRT) completes the second of back to back events this weekend with the Rocky Mountain Open in Salt Lake City, Utah. Last week’s surprise winner Rodrigo Montoya, is in the draw. He was seeded 11th for last week’s Pleasanton Open, but his win moves him up to be the 6th seed. Alejandro Cardona is the top seed with Andree Parrilla 2nd, David Horn 3rd and Jaime Martell 4th.

Thus, Montoya could face Horn in the quarterfinals. Also of note, young American left-hander Brad Schopieray is seeded 13th, so he could face Martell in the quarters.

The Round of 32 will begin Friday morning with the Round of 16 to follow late Friday afternoon and evening. The quarterfinals and semi-finals on Saturday and the final on Sunday. You should be able to watch the action live on Saturday and Sunday via the WRT website.
