De La Rosa wins 2022 IRT Dovetail Open

Daniel De La Rosa won the 2022 International Racquetball Tour (IRT) Dovetail Open in Sarasota, Florida on Sunday by defeating Rodrigo Montoya, 15-5, 15-3, in the final. The win further solidifies De La Rosa as the #1 player on the IRT, and it’s his 2nd win of 2022.

Montoya fought hard in the final, but didn’t get many points, so the score was very lop sided. De La Rosa was up 4-0 and 9-1 in game one, as he won 15-5. In game two, Montoya got the first two points, but only scored one in the rest of the game, as De La Rosa overcame that small deficit to win, 15-3, and take the match in two straight games.

But Montoya and Javier Mar won the IRT Doubles title in Sarasota. The win was by default, as Conrrado Moscoso was unable to play after he had a nasty fall yesterday during his singles semi-final against Montoya. Moscoso was going backward for a shot, and tripped over Montoya's foot, causing him to fall backwards and hit his head on the back wall.

While Moscoso wasn't diagnosed with a concussion last night, he was still unfit to play today, leading to the default win for Mar and Montoya.

The next IRT main event will be the Tournament of Champions in Portland, Oregon, December 1-4. But the Monterrey International Open is in two weeks, November 16-19 in Monterrey, Mexico.
