She's the current Women's World Champion in both Women's Singles and Doubles, winning both divisions at the 2021 International Racquetball Federation (IRF) World Championships in Guatemala City. Those titles make Longoria the winningest player in the IRF World Championships history, and she is the only woman to win both singles and doubles at Worlds. Longoria is also the #1 player on the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) tour, and was the first Mexican woman to attain the #1 pro ranking, doing so at the end of the 2008-09 season. She repeated the feat at the end of 2009–2010 season, and has been #1 for ten consecutive seasons. Longoria's style is characterized by a semi-western grip of the racquet, which is unusual for racquetball; Longoria is the only pro player using this grip style.
