Landa wins 2017 Torneo Interacional Canel’s WRT event

Alejandro Landa isn’t the #1 player on the World Racquetball Tour (WRT), but that’s only because he hasn’t played many events. When Landa enters a WRT event, he usually wins, as Landa did on Saturday, when he defeated Jake Bredenbeck, 15-6, 14-15, 11-0, to win the 2017 Torneo Interacional Canel’s WRT event in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The win was Landa’s 9th WRT title in 12 tries. He’s won at least one WRT event every year since 2013.

In the semi-finals, Landa defeated Alejandro Cardona, 15-3, 15-7, which was a measure of revenge for Landa, as Cardona got the best of him when they last met back in January at the WRT West Coast Championship in Concord, California. Cardona has beaten Landa twice in WRT events. Polo Gutierrez is the only other player to defeat Landa.

In the other semi-final, Bredenbeck beat Jordy Alonso, 15-5, 15-4.

The WRT will be back in action next weekend, when they’ll play in the Chihuahua Open in Chihuahua, Mexico, where the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) will also be in action with the Paola Longoria Challenge, June 14-18.
