  • Juan Herrera (IL) secures the first qualifying spot in the IRT Pro Nationals racquetball champs. 7 spots still up for grabs! #
  • http://www.irt-pronationals.com mentions a hard hit contest with Shane Vanderson. I think the last one was at the 2004 US OPEN! 178mph won! #
  • Hmmm another date on the "Hard Hit Contest" page is from 2007. Maybe it’s all outdated :-( #
  • Ruben Gonzalez, age 50+, defeated Alejandro Herrera in 5 games to make the main draw at the IRT Pro Nationals. WOW. That guy is amazing. #
  • Cliff Swain plays his THIRD qualifier today against Andy Hawthorne. Sucks to be Andy! Meeting CLIFF SWAIN in the qualifier?! #
  • R2sports’ online draws don’t seem to indicate where the qualifiers will be placed in the main draw. The suspense is killing me! #
  • Cliff Swain takes out Andy Hawthorne 5, (8), 10, 4 for a spot in the main draw. Wow. Sucks to be the guy who faces him next! ;-) #
