RESULTS: PSA Challenger 5 Indian Summer PSA Securian Open, St
Lifts St Paul Trophy
Scotland's Greg Lobban clinched the fourth PSA World Tour title of his
career when he surprised top seed Julian Illingworth in the final of the
Indian Summer PSA Securian Open, the PSA Challenger 5 squash event at
Commodore Squash Club in St Paul, USA.
The second seed from Edinburgh reached the final, the 10th of his
career, without dropping a game.
Awaiting him was home favourite Illingworth, the reigning and nine-time
US national champion who had also failed to concede a game en-route to
the climax. It was the illustrious 30-year-old from Portland's 23rd Tour
final – but his first of the year.
The match was the pair's first meeting, with Lobban 16 ranking places
behind the home hero.
But the 22-year-old Scot made a sensational start, winning the first
game for the loss of just a single point before going on to take the
match 11-1, 11-5, 12-10.
"Pleasing week here at the Indian Summer PSA event," World No.71 Lobban
told his Twitter followers later. "Won my 4th title. One more stop left
on my tour. #Chicagobound"
Lobban is fourth seed in this week's Life Time Chicago Open.
