RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 City Hall PSA Challenger Estarreja,
Rises To Estarreja Challenge
Top seed Joel Hinds survived an all-English challenge in the final of
the City Hall PSA Challenger Estarreja to win the inaugural PSA
Challenger 5 squash event at the Complexo de Desporto e Lazer de
Estarreja in Estarreja, Portugal.
Hinds reached the final after defeating third-seeded Frenchman Geoffrey
Demont in the semi-finals – a win which took the Birmingham-based
27-year-old into his 12th Tour final.
Second seed Ford, fresh from his Tour title triumph last week at the
Anadia Challenger also in Portugal, had to see off compatriot Alex
Ingham, the No.6 seed, in the other semi.
27 ranking positions separated the two finalists as they took to the
court – with World No.72 Hinds eager to avenge his shock defeat by the
lower-ranked Ford in the Anadia semi-finals.
Hinds (pictured below, right, with Ford) led throughout the first two
games, and scored five points in a row from 6-8 down in the third to
claim his 11-7, 11-9, 11-8 revenge win.
"The athletes received their awards and Joel Hinds, on behalf of the
athletes, highlighted the good organization, his happiness of winning in
Estarreja, the pleasure of having faced Tom in the final and the fact
that Estarreja provided a good week," said tournament spokesman Paulo
The win marked the fifth PSA World Tour title of Hinds' career, and his
second this year.
