The main draw of the AVP Glendale Open will begin today at 8 a.m. at the Westgate City Center as the AVP Crocs Tour makes its first-ever stop in Glendale.

Jen Snyder of Glendale and Janelle Ruen advanced from the qualification tournament Thursday to main-draw play and will face Keao Burdine and Nancy Mason at approximately 8 a.m. today.

On the men’s side, Rico Becker of Phoenix and Mike Bruning of Tucson advanced to Saturday’s play and will face Nick Lucena and Will Strickland at approximately 8 a.m.

This weekend, Misty May-Treanor will look for her third win of the season and the 72nd win of her career, which would tie Holly McPeak’s record for the most overall victories. May-Treanor and partner Kerri Walsh have won the last two events on the AVP Crocs Tour and will play in the second round of competition around 9:30 a.m.

On the men’s side, Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers look to get back on top after their rare loss in the semifinals last week.
