Claims Curitiba Crown
Angel Rodriguez battled for 66 minutes in the final
of the Curitiba Open to win the $15,000 PSA Tour squash
event at the Barigui Shopping Mall in Curitiba in Brazil.
The top seed from
Bogotá, who was celebrating his 14th time in a Tour final,
was facing surprise English opponent Tom Richards –
the No8 seed from Surrey who had survived hour-long
matches against higher seeds in the previous two rounds to earn
a place in his maiden Tour final.
The 22-year-old Colombian
twice led in the match – and 21-year-old Richards twice drew level.
But it was South
American champion Rodriguez who prevailed in the decider to record
an 11-9, 2-11, 11-9, 9-11, 11-8 victory – and the seventh PSA Tour
title of his career.
RESULTS: Curitiba Squash
