The Round of 16 at the SCS Title and Escrow Pro-Am in Herndon, Virginia - this weekend's Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) event - produced one upset by the rankings, but it was former #1 Cheryl Gudinas defeating Jennifer Saunders in five games, 5-11, 12-10, 9-11, 11-5, 11-6, to advance to the quarter finals and likely continue Gudinas's streak of top 10 season ending finishes on the women's pro tour that dates back to 1994.
Krystal Csuk, the fourth seed for the first time in her career, was almost upset by Keely Franks, but managed to fend off the Texan in five games, 3-11, 11-4, 2-11, 11-6, 11-8.
Top seed Paola Longoria won easily, defeating Sarah Warhaftig, 11-0, 11-1, 11-3. Second seed Rhonda Rajsich might have been upset by Grace Hughes if they'd played a best of seven, as Hughes got three more points each game of their match. But of course, they played a best of five and Rajsich won in three games, 11-3, 11-6, 11-9.
