2017 Torneo Interacional Canel’s WRT - Quarterfinals

Only one of the top four seeds has made it into the semi-finals at the 2017 Torneo Interacional Canel’s World Racquetball Tour (WRT) in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Most surprising was top seed Rodrigo Montoya being forfeited from his match versus 8th seed Jake Bredenbeck, as he wasn’t at the court within the 10 min from being called to the court. This was Montoya’s first tournament as the #1 seed, and he’ll be disappointed to lose out in that fashion.

In one semi-final, Bredenbeck will face 13th seed Jordy Alonso, who was a straight game winner over 5th seed Gerardo Franco, 15-8, 15-5. In the other semi, 2nd seed Alejandro Cardona will play 6th Alejandro Landa.

In the quarterfinals, Cardona defeated Mauricio Zelada, 15-5, 15-6, and Landa upset 3rd seed David Horn, 15-12, 15-6. Landa and Horn were close all the way in game one before Landa finished it off. But in game two, Landa took a big lead at 9-2, and although Horn called a timeout at that point, he could only manage to get a few points before Landa finished off the game and match.

You can view the semi-finals live from San Luis Potosi starting at 11 AM Saturday morning via the WRT Facebook page. Note the final will be Saturday at 5 PM CDT.
