WPH ON ESPN SUNDAY

World 3 WallBall Outdoor Championships (Posted Sept, 2014)

Men’s Big Ball Player’s Cup Singles

Two-time defending WPH/WOR 3 Wallball champion Juan Santos started slowly in his semifinal match with Cinderella Story Flash Tojin, trailing 8-10 after the first 18 points. Santos would start to execute his shots in the latter stages of game one and scored 22 of the matches’ final 24 points to earn his third consecutive 3 Wallball finals birth.

Ricky Ruiz faced Samzon Hernandez in the second men’s pro singles semifinal having never defeated “The Machine” in tournament play. Ruiz dominated play in game one and appeared to be in control of game two en route to a two-game sweep. Samzon would apply the pressure, ultimately evening the match at one game apiece.

Many expected “The Machine” to take over in the tiebreaker given his track record as one of the greatest pressure players in handball but it was Ruiz who would thoroughly dominate the action in game three. Racing to an 8-0 lead with a barrage of kill shots and pass shots, Ruiz stunned Hernandez and the thousands watching live and on ESPN3. “I was just in the zone,” Ruiz would later say. “My shots were just coming off perfectly and I felt great.”

Ruiz’s remarkable performance placed him in his second consecutive Player’s Cup final. Ruiz will face Santos at 10 am Pacific on ESPN & WatchESPN App atwww.watchespn.com  Read more from Saturday, HERE>
