Summary: Luis Cordova is the youngest player to ever finish inside the WPH Race 4 Eight Elite 8 at 21 years old in 2012. Armed with one of the best right hands in the world, Cordova can end rallies from anywhere on the court with his stiletto right, even when his opponents know it’s coming. Cordova knows how to play against the best, as evidenced by his tour victories against Mando Ortiz, Luis Moreno, Sean Lenning, Allan Garner, and David Fink. At 25, Cordova is still improving and will likely be a fixture in the R48 top five for many years
