Barrios wins in Kansas & summer preview

Angelica Barrios capped off a great season Sunday by winning Women’s Open at the 2022 TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam in Overland Park, Kansas, where she defeated Kelani Lawrence in the final, 15-4, 15-13. Earlier this season, Barrios won Women's Singles at the 2022 Pan American Championships, and reached the US Open semi-finals for the first time.

In the Women’s Open semi-finals, Barris defeated Valeria Centellas, 15-11, 14-15, 11-5, and Lawrence beat Micaela Meneses, 15-6, 15-5.

Barrios lost in the Round of 16 of the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) singles draw in Kansas to veteran Rhonda Rajsich, but nonetheless should be ranked in the season ending LPRT top 10 for the first time. She's had a great season indeed.

Upcoming events

It will be a busy summer of racquetball this year, as the 2022 World Games take place in Birmingham, Alabama next month, and then the International Racquetball Federation (IRF) World Championships happen in San Luis Potosi, Mexico from August 19-27.

The World Games competition will begin on July 10 and run to July 13. Only singles will be played, and 16 players qualified for the event from the IRF World Championships last year in Guatemala. The men’s Round of 16 will be on July 10 with the women’s 16s on July 11. Then the quarterfinals and semi-finals will be July 12 and the finals on July 13. We think there will be 3rd place matches as well on the 13th.

The main court from the US Open will be used for the event, and all matches will be played on that court. Also, we understand that video replay rather than line judges will be used for all appeals. It will be interesting to see how well that works.

The World Games match format will be the same as for the 2022 Pan American Championships: best of 5 games with the first four games to 15 points, win by 1, and the fifth game, if necessary, will be played to 11 points, win by 2. Rally scoring - every rally results in a point for a player - will used.

But for the 2022 World Championships will use rally scoring with a match format of best of five games to 11 points with each game win by 2. That’s similar to what the pro tours used to do, but with rally scoring rather than scoring only when serving.

It should make for an exciting summer of racquetball.

Longoria, Herrera & Manilla win at 2022 LPRT TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam

Paola Longoria defeated Montserrat Mejia, 15-14, 15-10, to win the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam in Overland Park, Kansas in what was a rematch of last year’s TeamRoot.com final that Mejia won. Last year’s win was Mejia’s first LPRT title, while today’s win was Longoria’s 107th, and further solidified her as the LPRT’s #1 player for an 11th straight season and 13th time overall.

In the doubles final, Alexandra Herrera and Erika Manilla defeated Gabriela Martinez and Maria Renee Rodriguez in two straight games, 15-12, 15-14.

Longoria led most of the way in game one, and when she was up 7-1, it seemed that she might steam roll Mejia. But that was not the case, as Mejia came back and got within one at 7-6 and kept it close from there.

Longoria did go up 13-9 and then 14-10 on Mejia, but for the longest time she couldn’t get the last point. After two game point opportunities went by Longoria took a timeout prior to serving for her third game point. Yet Mejia again denied her by hitting a nice touch backhand shot.

That led to three Mejia winners on consecutive rallies to get her within one at 14-13. Longoria won the next rally, despite two dives by a Mejia the second of which was unsuccessful in keeping the ball in play.

On her fourth game point, Longoria skipped a forehand shot, which was an uncommon unforced error by the LPRT #1, who made more than a few such errors in game one. They exchanged sideouts again - Mejia fighting off Longoria’s fifth game point with a backhand cross court serve return off a drive serve to the left side. That led to a point for Mejia, as she drove serve to the right side and Longoria skipped the forehand return to make it 14-14.

Mejia hit a drive Z serve to the left side on the next rally, which was the serve she used almost exclusively late in game one. This time the ball came off the side wall into the middle of the court, and Longoria’s serve return hit Mejia, who was directly between the ball and the front wall. The referee called an avoidable hinder, which put Longoria back in the service box. Mejia did appeal, but the line judges agreed with the referee’s call.

The sixth time proved to be a charm for Longoria, as she won game one on her sixth game point when Mejia skipped a backhand shot, making the final 15-14.

They were close in game two with ties at 4-4, 7-7 and 10-10. That last tie came after a Longoria timeout following a six rally exchange of sideouts. She got two more points to lead 12-10, and Mejia called a timeout.

Mejia got the serve back after play resumed following her timeout, but she didn’t score as a Longoria forehand winner got her the serve back. Two points followed on consecutive rallies, which put Longoria on match point at 14-10.

As in game one, Mejia staved off Longoria’s match point, but a great backhand pinch by Longoria prevented Mejia from scoring and put Longoria into the service box for her second match point. She converted that with a forehand pinch winner, winning game two 15-10 and the match in two straight games.

In doubles, Herrera and Manilla led early in game one versus Martinez and Rodriguez at 5-1. But then Martinez and Rodriguez put together a run and won the mid-game to take a 12-8 lead. However, they stalled there, as Herrera and Manilla won the last seven points of the game to take it, 15-12.

In game two, Martinez and Rodriguez led the whole way, including at 7-2, 10-5 and 14-10. Herrera and Manilla called a timeout at 14-10, and won the next two rallies to get the serve back. They scored two points to get within two at 14-12 before giving the serve back to Martinez and Rodriguez.

But the third and fourth game points went by the boards, as Martinez and Rodriguez again couldn’t get the point they needed to force a tie-breaker. They called a timeout after Herrera and Manilla got within one at 14-13.

Martinez hit a winning forehand kill shot to put Herrera and Manilla half down. Herrera hit a forehand pinch winner to tie it at 14-14, and Manilla won them the match on the next rally, when she hit a backhand cross court winner to make it 15-14. They never led in game two until the end.

It was a remarkable win, as Herrera injured her right ankle recently and wasn’t sure she was going to be able to play in Kansas. Indeed, she couldn’t play her singles match, as she forfeited it a few points into the first game.

Yet Herrera managed to put it together for doubles with Manilla, who had more than enough energy to cover the balls that Herrera couldn’t reach. And when Herrera could reach the ball, she was more than able to do something with it.

Herrera is great when her feet are planted, and this weekend it was hard for her to have her feet anything but planted.

The win was Manilla’s first LPRT title. She was runner up with Rhonda Rajsich in Women’s Doubles at the first event of this season in Colorado, but that wasn’t a full LPRT doubles draw as they played mixed doubles with the International Racquetball Tour in that event. So, this was probably Manilla’s first LPRT final also.

This brings the 2021-22 LPRT season to a close. If you missed any of the action from Kansas, go to the LPRT YouTube channel or the LPRT website. There were several great matches, including Sunday’s finals.

Longoria & Mejia in 2nd straight LPRT TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam final

Paola Longoria and Montserrat Mejia will faceoff in the final of the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam in Overland Park, Kansas for a second consecutive year, as they also met in last’s years final, when Mejia beat Longoria for the first time on tour. They both won their respective semi-final matches in two straight games. Longoria - the LPRT’s #1 player - beat her doubles partner Samantha Salas, 15-2, 15-5, while 6th seed Mejia defeated 18th seed Hollie Scott, 15-8, 15-9.

Longoria and Mejia were both solid in the semis. Salas and Scott played well, but both were a bit all or nothing on their shots, and while they made a good number of shots, they were not as consistent as their opponents.

The drama on Saturday was all in the doubles semi-finals. Gabriela Martinez and Maria Renee Rodriguez were down 14-0 in game one against the #1 seeds Longoria and Salas, yet they came back to win the match in a tie-breaker, 5-15, 15-6, 11-7. This is Martinez and Rodriguez’s second win over Longoria and Salas on tour and the first came in the semi-finals of last year’s TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam.

In the other semi-final, Alexandra Herrera and Erika Manilla came back to defeat Mejia and Jessica Parrilla, 5-15, 15-4, 11-4. Herrera is practically playing on one leg, as she suffered an injury recently, and withdrew in game one of her first singles match this weekend. But the lefthanded Herrera can still shoot the ball when she doesn’t have to move too much to get to it, and Manilla is more than able to cover the balls that don’t come to her partner, so they managed to pull out the victory.

Manilla also helped her side’s cause by hitting drive jams serves to the left side that came over to Parrilla on the right side at an awkward angle that she had trouble handling.

Herrera and Mejia played together in last year’s TeamRoot.com event - as they usually do - and they defeated Martinez and Rodriguez in the final. Martinez and Rodriguez will be looking to get a bit of revenge for that loss and to capture their first LPRT doubles title. Sunday’s final will be just the second time Martinez and Rodriguez are in a final.

You can watch the LPRT TeamRoot.com finals live via the LPRT YouTube channel or the LPRT website (click “LPRT Live” at the top of the page). The singles final will be Sunday at noon with the doubles final to follow at 1 PM. All times central.

Three repeat semi-finalists & a first timer at the 2022 LPRT TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam

Wins came in straight games in the quarterfinals at the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) 2022 TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam in Overland Park, Kansas after several tie-breakers in the Round of 16 on Friday. LPRT #1 Paola Longoria played one of the longest matches in the quarters, as she defeated 9th seed Erika Manilla, 15-4, 15-13. After being dominated in the first game, Manilla came back hard in game two, and almost forced it to a breaker only to see the #1 close it out in two games.

Longoria will play a familiar foe in the semi-finals later Saturday, when she faces her long time doubles parter and 13th seed Samantha Salas. Salas upset LPRT #5 Gabriela Martinez, 15-5, 15-12, in the quarters.

On the bottom half of the draw, it’ll be defending TeamRoot.com champion Montserrat Mejia against Hollie Scott. Mejia had a dominating win over 14th seed Carla Muñoz, 15-1, 15-7, and Scott, the 18th seed, defeated the 10th seed veteran Rhonda Rajsich, 15-6, 15-5, to reach the semi-finals for the first time in her career.

This is the last event of the 2021-22 LPRT season, so the season ending rankings will be determined after this event. Despite her loss, Manilla will be in the top 10 for the first time in her career. Salas may have an outside chance of making the top 10, as she comes in at #13, and is 36.5 points behind Rajsich in 10th. But Salas was also a semi-finalist in last year’s TeamRoot.com event, while Rajsich lost in the Round of 16, so Salas is defending more points than Rajsich, who should gain points from getting to the quarterfinals this year, while Salas needs to get to the final to do better than she did last year.

You can watch the LPRT TeamRoot.com event live via the LPRT YouTube channel or the LPRT website (click “LPRT Live” at the top of the page). The singles semi-finals are at 4 and 5 PM, and the final Sunday at noon. The doubles semis will be at 6 and 7 PM Saturday with the doubles final at 1 PM Sunday. All times central.

Upsets & tie-breakers in the Round of 16 at the 2022 LPRT TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam

Upsets and tie-breakers were the order of the day in the Round of 16 at the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) 2022 TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam in Overland Park, Kansas on Friday, and that included LPRT #1 Paola Longoria, who was pushed to a tie-breaker by 17th seed Sheryl Lotts, but Longoria prevailed in the end, winning 15-8, 11-15, 11-4. Longoria will play 9th seed Erika Manilla in the quarterfinals on Saturday, as Manilla beat 8th seed Jessica Parrilla, 15-8, 15-10, in the 16s, which was one of only two matches in the Round of 16 to be completed in two straight games.

LPRT #2 Alexandra Herrera was one of the upset victims Friday, as she lost to 18th seed Hollie Scott. Herrera apparently hurt her ankle recently, and while she tried to play on it against Scott, she clearly was not match fit. Thus, she made the decision to retire early in game one. However, Herrera did play her doubles match with Manilla, and they came back to defeat Brenda Laime and Carla Muñoz, 7-15, 15-7, 11-8.

Muñoz fared better singles, as she knocked off LPRT #3 Maria Jose Vargas in three games, 9-15, 15-13, 11-3. Muñoz will play defending TeamRoot.com champion Montserrat Mejia in the quarters on Saturday, as Meija beat 11th seed Kelani Lawrence, 15-11, 15-6, on Friday.

Also on Saturday, LPRT #5 Gabriela Martinez will play veteran Samantha Salas. Martinez held off 12th seed Brenda Laime, 15-11, 13-15, 11-5, and 13th seeded Salas upset LPRT #4 Natalia Mendez, 12-15, 15-13, 11-1.

Finally, veteran Rhonda Rajsich, the 10th seed, upset current Pan American Champion and 7th seed Angelica Barrios, 15-6, 12-15, 11-8. That win sets up an all American showdown with Scott on Saturday.

Doubles

Longoria and Salas - the top seeds in doubles - won their match against Lotts and Rajsich in two straight games, 15-7, 15-7, in the quarterfinals. In the semi-finals, they’ll play the 5th seeded Guatemala team of Martinez and Maria Renee Rodriguez, who upset the 4th seeds Mendez and Valeria Centellas, 15-8, 15-11.

Third seeds Mejia and Parrilla fended off 6th seeds Lawrence and Scott, 15-6, 9-15, 11-8, so they’ll play Herrera and Manilla in the semi-finals, which will be a battle of usual doubles partners, as Herrera and Mejia have played together for several years reaching the finals many times and winning some of them. This weekend one of them will again be in the final but at the expense of the other.

You can watch the LPRT TeamRoot.com event live via the LPRT YouTube channel or the LPRT website (click “LPRT Live” at the top of the page). The singles quarterfinals will be 11 and noon Saturday with the semi-finals are at 4 and 5 PM, and the final Sunday at noon.

2022 LPRT TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam - Round of 32

The Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour’s (LPRT’s) 2021-22 season wraps up this weekend with the 2022 TeamRoot.com Super Max Slam, which has become the traditional season ending event held in Overland Park, Kansas. There’s a strong field of 28 players including the top 15 ranked LPRT players and 19 of the top 21. LPRT #1 Paola Longoria leads the field, along with two time winner on tour LPRT #2 Alexandra Herrera.

But neither of them is the defending TeamRoot.com champion. That is Montserrat Mejia, who upset Longoria in the final last year after defeating Herrera in the quarterfinals. That could happen again this year, as Mejia is seeded 6th, so could play Herrera en route to the final.

Mejia is off to a good start, as she defeated 27th seed Martina Katz, 15-2, 15-3, in the Round of 32. Katz was runner up in Girls U18 at last year’s International Racquetball Federation World Junior Championships. Mejia will play 11th seed Kelani Lawrence in the Round of 16 this afternoon, as Lawrence beat 22nd seed Camila Rivero, 15-5, 15-5, in the 32s.

Doubles

Longoria and Samantha Salas are the top seeds in doubles, which is no surprise, but what is surprising is that the 2nd seeds are Herrera and Erika Manilla and the 3rd seeds are Mejia and Jessica Parrilla. This surprising because Herrera has successfully played with Mejia for several years, but when Mejia wasn’t at the last tournament in South Carolina Herrera played with Parrilla, and they won, beating Longoria and Salas in the final.

So, why are we messing with success here? Not sure. If any changes were to be made from the Herrera and Mejia partnership, we would have thought Herrera and Parrilla would play together given their win last month. But the players have chosen otherwise.

Finally, what a difference a year can make. Erika Manilla was seeded 31st at last year’s TeamRoot.com event, and played in the singles Round of 64. This year she’s the 9th seed, and the highest seeded USA player in the field, ahead of veteran Rhonda Rajsich, who is 10th. That’s remarkable progress in just one year.

You can watch the LPRT TeamRoot.com event live via the LPRT YouTube channel or the LPRT website (click “LPRT Live” at the top of the page). The Round of 32 began at 9 AM with the Round of 16 starting at 2 PM. The quarterfinals will be 11 and noon Saturday. Doubles began Thursday, and continues Friday evening at 6 and 7 PM Friday with the Round of 16 followed by the quarterfinals at noon and 1 PM Saturday. The singles semi-finals are Saturday at 4 and 5 PM and the doubles semis at 6 and 7 PM. The singles final will be noon Sunday with the doubles final to follow at 1 PM. All times central.
