Charlton Brushes Off Bon Jovi Bong to Take Malaysian Title

Top seed Eddie Charlton ensured that he will end 2015 in style after lifting his first PSA World Tour title of the year at the Malaysian Tour XI, PSA M5 event by defeating home favourite Valentino Bon Jovi Bong in the final.

Charlton secured his final berth by downing Bon Jovi Bongís fellow Malaysian Elvinn Keo in straight games while Bon Jovi Bong saw off Adam Murrills in four.

Appearing in his first PSA World Tour final in front of a partizan home crowd, Bon Jovi Bong pushed his opponent all the way in an opening game that saw both players mix up their games in a bid to seize the initiative.

However, Charlton pulled away to open up a one-game advantage and he surged to victories in the next two to wrap up an 11-9, 11-3, 11-3 triumph.

Victory in Malaysia sees Charlton capture his fifth PSA World Tour title and his first since May 2014.

#PSAWorldTour

Number three seed Rachel Arnold recovered from a 2-1 deficit to beat surprise package Menna Hamed in the final of the Malaysian Tour XI, PSA M5 tournament Ė securing her first ever PSA World Tour title in the process.

It was Arnoldís third final on the 2015 instalment of the Malaysian Tour with her two previous final appearances ending in defeats.

A strong start saw the Malaysian surge into a one-game lead but a gargantuan effort from Hamed saw her turn the match on its head as she went 2-1 ahead for the loss of a solitary point in game three.

However, Arnold came battling back and wrestled the momentum of the match in her favour, eventually rising to claim an exceptionally hard-fought 11-4, 10-12, 1-11, 11-9, 11-9 victory.
