England’s Declan James wins in Houston

England’s Declan James produced an assured performance to see off number four seed Danish Atlas Khan in the final of the Champion Fiberglass Open, PSA M10 tournament to win his second successive PSA World Tour title.

Nottingham-born James prevailed over Eric Galvez in a tense quarter-final fixture before sweeping past Eddie Charlton in an all-English semi-final. Khan was also forced to go the full distance against compatriot Farhan Zaman in their quarter-final tie before dispatching top seed Henrik Mustonen in straight games.

James took the first game, putting his rangy 6’ 4” stature to good use as he covered all areas of the court before Khan battled back to level things up in the second.

Zaman started well in the third but James responded magnificently and started slowing down the rallies on the backhand. This worked in the World No.51’s favour as an impatient Khan began to hit a number of unforced errors in a bid to change the pace up, resulting in the second game going to James.

The fifth game saw much of the same as James continued on to an impressive 11-8, 5-11, 11-7, 11-4 victory – lifting his sixth PSA World Tour title in the process.

Result – Final: Champion Fiberglass Open 2015
[3] Declan James (ENG) bt [4] Danish Atlas Khan (PAK) 11-8, 5-11, 11-7, 11-4 (52m)
