Pocos de Caldas, Brazil
Rallies To Caldense Success
picked up his second PSA World Tour
title in three months when he beat surprise opponent Rodrigo Pezzota
in the final of the Caldense International Squash
the inaugural PSA Challenger 5
event at Rua Pernambuco 1144 Centro
in Pocos de Caldas,
Top seed Rehman, who divides his time between home town Salzburg and
his training base in Harrogate, England, dropped his only game of
the tournament in the semis – where Spanish qualifier Hugo Varela
eventually met his match after earlier shock victories over
Brazilian opponents Manoel Pereira
and Josimar Silva,
the No.4 and No.6 seeds, respectively.
Now in the fifth Tour final of his career, the 28-year-old Austrian
faced outsider Rodrigo Pezzota,
the 29-year-old No.8 seed from Argentina who stunned second seed
in the quarter-finals.
Pezzota, the World No.156 from
Rosario, celebrated his 25th appearance in a PSA Tour event since
2005 by making his maiden Tour final!
But Rehman, ranked more than 70 places higher, was too strong for
the Argentinean – winning 11-6, 11-6, 12-10 to collect the fourth
Tour title of his career.
