[b]Puerto Rico has 3 Players at the US Open, in addition to Mike Lebron and Frankie Hernandez.

The PR Players are:

Alan Rolon, Miguel Laboy and Javier de Jesus, all active Players in the Puerto Rico circuit.

This is how PR players have faired so far:

Round 1

Frankie Hernandez vs Mike Davis = 11-6
Mike Lebron vs Marty Sawinski = 4-11
Miguel Laboy vs Ismael "Morro" Paez = 9 - 11
Alan Rolon vs Shawn Putnam = 6-11
Javier de Jesus vs Tommy Kennedy = 5=11

Round 2

Frankie Hernandez vs Greg Ridenour = 5-11
Mike Lebron vs Dennis Bolela = ?
Miguel Laboy vs M. Toivonen = ?
Alan Rolon vs Dennis Besch = ?
Javier de Jesus vs Bye = Advances to another round.

The 3 Players (Laboy, Rolon, and De Jesus) from the Island had some pretty tough competition at the first round. Laboy drawed Morro Paez and was defeated 11-9. This is great considering that Morro is an established and proven Player. Rolon fell at the hands of Shawn Putnam 11-6, which I consider also an accomplishment. While De Jesus fell to Tommy Kennedy 11-5, certainly not bad. I am certain that the Puerto Rican followers could live with these performances considering our lack of International play.

While this info may not be of great interest to all CCB'ers, I would like to know what some of you think about our Players.

Don't be shy about this, I can handle the truth!

Hi Harold,

I think you summed it up pretty good. They need to play more international events. The good thing is they're in there doing battle. All these players are champions and it could have possible went the other way too. I wish I could give you an opinion first hand on what I thought of their play. I like you wish I was there too.

Regards,

C.C.

Great to know! If you have any additional info about Jeff, where he plays at, etc. send me a private message or email me.

I saw Jeff's name in the brackets, so I'll look for his performance and inform the Island's fans and Players.

Thanks for the information.
