Paoloa Longoira and Samantha Salas dominated the match, with the Chileans barely claiming a point, going down 15-1, 15-3. The Mexicans will go on to look to defend their title, having beaten the Chilean pair in the final of the last World Championships.
While racquetball is a little known sport in many countries, Longoira was ranked among Mexico’s most influential women by Forbes.
