Just a quick update as the local organizers are struggling a bit with the internet connection.
These are the semifinals this afternoon at 1600 local time;
Pablo Saragovi ARG vs Rodrigo Tapia ECU ; Tapia looking for revenge from yesterdays 0-4 defeat.. Should be a closer match this time as the left-handed Ecuadorian is continuing to work hard to improve his game.
Michael Landers USA vs Hector Sola CUB ; Michael Landers from USA is slowly finding his game and emotional balance here in San Salvador. Would be a surprise if he failed to clinch this one.
Yunesi Galvan CUB vs Carelyn Cordero PUR ; Cordero lost to Caroline Kumahara in a nailbiter yesterday. She is continuing to do plenty of good things at the table and should ble able to stay clear from danger in this matchup.
Caroline Kumahara BRA vs Agustina Iwasa ARG ; Kumahara looked composed this morning – but was severely tested in her quarterfinal vs vastly improved Daniela Castillo from Colombia.
Second day of play will no re-start 1600 local time with the finals scheduled for 18;00.
