2019 IRF World Junior Championships - Saturday results

The 2019 International Racquetball Federation (IRF) World Junior Racquetball Championships began Saturday in San José, Costa Rica. There were only matches in Boy's singles divisions. On day one, there were several tie-breakers. Mexicans played a couple of them in Boy’s U18.

In Group A, Mexican Emir Martinez (Mexico) and Canadian Sean Sauvé traded 15-14 games, and then - as is often the case after two close games - the tie-breaker wasn’t close, with Martinez taking it 11-2. Then in Group C, Mexico’s Jose Ramos came back from a game down to beat Costa Rica’s Pablo Freer, 12-15, 15-6, 11-6.

Freer’s U18 team-mate Tomas Sanchez (Costa Rica) also played a tie-breaker, but he was victorious, as he defeated the USA’s Micah Farmer, 15-7, 7-15, 11-2. Finally in U18, Johan Igor of Chile won a close match with Esteban De Janon of Ecuador, 15-7, 12-15, 11-9.

In Boy’s U16, Mexican Aldo Caraveo and the USA’s Andrew Gleason played two games that weren’t close, and then the tie-breaker was close, as often seems to be the case, with Caraveo coming out on top, 15-4, 5-15, 11-9. Also, Canadian Nathan Jauvin needed three games to defeat Tomas Oyhanart of Argentina, 15-1, 7-15, 11-6.

No tie-breakers in Boy’s U14, but there was one close match as Antonio Sanchez of Costa Rica defeated Vedant Chauhan of the USA, 15-14, 15-10.

The girls and the doubles group matches begin on Sunday. As with other IRF events, there is a group stage of play followed by a medal round with the group stage results creating the seeding for the medal round.
