Professional Career

De La Rosa defeated¬†Alvaro Beltran¬†in the final of the 2014 New Jersey Open, 11-4, 11-6, 9-11, 12-10, to win his first pro event.[2]¬†De La Rosa reached the final by beating¬†Rocky Carson¬†in the semi-finals, 12-10, 9-11, 11-6, 11-6. The win comes in De La Rosa’s second season playing full time on the IRT.

In 2015, De La Rosa was a finalist at the US Open Рthe second Mexican player to do so after Beltran. He reached the final after an epic five game match with Rocky Carson, winning 11-9, 10-12, 8-11, 11-8, 12-10. [3] But in the final, Kane Waselenchuk defeated De La Rosa in straight games, 11-5, 11-8, 11-3.

De La Rosa began playing the IRT full time in the 2013-14 season, entering ten of the eleven events. He reached his first career final in Davison, Michigan, where he lost to countryman¬†Alvaro Beltran, 11-8, 10-12, 11-8, 11-4, in what was the first IRT final between two Mexican players in IRT history.[4]¬†In addition in 2013-14, De La Rosa made at least the quarterfinals in each tournament he entered, and reached the semi-finals twice. As a result, De La Rosa achieved a career high 5th ranking at season’s end, which is the second best ranking ever for a Mexican player.

De La Rosa played a few IRT tournaments each season since 2008-09. He first reached the Round of 16 in 2010-11, doing so three times and repeating that in the 2011-12 season. In 2012-13, De La Rosa played half of the IRT events, and made his first career semi-final at the Stockton Pro-Am, losing to Rocky Carson in three games, 11-8, 11-2, 11-2, as well as three quarterfinals. Those results helped put him 9th in the season ending rankings. He became the third Mexican player to be in the IRT top 10 after Beltran and Javier Moreno.
