Despite creeping outside his prime years after turning thirty-four earlier this year, Rocky continues to be one of the most consistent finishers on tour. HeÕs played every stop the last three seasons, finished in the top eight each of the last fourteen seasons, placed in the top three each of the last seven seasons, and held the number two spot each of the last three seasons.
Rocky shows no signs of slowing down. Last year he was impressive, making at least the semifinals in every tournament (four times), making the finals the other eight times and winning three of those. The two seasons prior Rocky got tripped up a couple of times each year in the quarterfinals or round of sixteen. He was the only player not named Kane to win a pro stop last year, and he won three, more than the two seasons before that combined.
With one of the most impressive racquetball resumes currently on tour, it is going to be hard for Rocky to improve much on the results from last year. It starts with no early exits and making the semifinals or finals every tournament. While he continues to try and find a new game plan for Kane, if he hasnÕt figured it out by now it might not exist. A better bet might be to outlast Kane, as RockyÕs phenomenal conditioning has kept him on the court. The one final he won against Kane last year was due to an injury forfeit, and the other two stops he won were helped by Kane not being in the draws due to injury.
