Romiglio secures first ever World Tour title

Number four seed Leandro Romiglio secured his first ever PSA World Tour title with a 3-1 triumph over Belgium’s Jan van den Herrewegen in the final of the BDO Northfield Cup, PSA M5 tournament.

Romiglio, who was appearing at his 53rd PSA World Tour event, booked his place in the final courtesy of fine victories against Sunny Seth and second seed Reiko Peter in the quarter-final and semi-final, respectively. Van den Herrewegen meanwhile was coming off the back of stunning top seed Richie Fallows in his semi-final fixture.

The first game was a tight affair with both combatants contributing to some lengthy and entertaining rallies. Romiglio pulled away at the end of the game due to some unforced errors from van den Herrewegen and, despite the Belgian saving two match balls, held firm to claim the opening game 11-7. Van den Herrewegen stormed into an early lead in game two, mixing up some fine length with some well hidden deception and he went on to level things up.

World No.146 Romiglio ensured that there wasn’t to be a change of momentum in the third as he unleashed a barrage of tight drives in an attempt to ramp up the pressure. This method seemed to take its toll on van den Herrewegen as he succumbed to an 11-3 defeat in Romiglio’s favour.

The fourth game continued along a similar vein with Romiglio playing a very consistent brand of squash. A tin from van den Herrewegen gave Romiglio the championship ball and he made no mistake to seal an 11-7, 5-11, 11-3, 11-4 victory to break his PSA World Tour title duck.

Result – Final: BDO Northfield Cup 2015
[4] Leandro Romiglio (ARG) bt [8] Jan van den Herrewegen (BEL) 3-1: 11-7, 5-11, 11-3, 11-4
