Piedro Powers To NSW Prize

#PSAWorldTour
 
Dutchman
Piedro Schweertman celebrated his fourth appearance in a PSA World Tour final in as many weeks by beating Australian Matthew Hopkin to win the New South Wales Open at Thornleigh Squash Centre in Sydney, Australia.
 
The seventh seed from Hoofddorp was taken the full distance in the semi-finals of the
PSA Challenger 5 event when he edged out the club's head pro Aaron Frankcomb, the defending champion and former world No38 who retired from the Tour at the beginning of last year, 11-9, 2-11, 11-6, 11-13, 11-6.
 
Unseeded Hopkin, the 23-year-old from Brisbane who showed his potential by winning last week's
Shepparton International in Victoria, again downed a number of seeds en-route to only the second Tour final of his career overcoming England's No6 seed Adam Auckland in a five-game semi.
 
But after losing to Hopkin in the Shepparton climax, 30-year-old Schweertman was after revenge:  The  World No.183 duly achieved his goal by seeing off his younger opponent 11-6, 12-10, 11-4.
 
The win marked Schweertman's second PSA Tour title of the month and the fifth of his career.
