Gillams Captures Second Title of the Year in Madison

Englandís Angus Gillams continued his fine form so far in 2016 with a victory over New Zealandís Martin Knight in the final of the JBM Patrol Spring Classic, PSA M10 tournament seeing him lift his second PSA World Tour title of the year.

Gillams knocked out the top seed and pre-tournament title favourite Karim Ali Fathi in the quarter-final, which laid the groundwork for an impressive surge to the final that also included a strong victory over sixth seed Jan van den Herrewegen. Elsewhere, Knight just made it past Pakistanís Danish Atlas Khan in the last four after seeing a two-game lead crumble, only to turn things around at the end.

The Englishman took the opening two games after a series of long, arduous rallies that saw Gillams hold his nerve at the crucial points to earn a 2-0 advantage.

Knight fought back hard in the third though, taking a commanding lead that he refused to relinquish in order to claw a game back and send the match into a dramatic fourth.

Gillams remained composed though and kept up his consistent hitting in the final game to seal a 12-10, 11-9, 5-11, 11-8 win and capture his third title in his best ever season on the PSA World Tour.
 
JBM Patrol Spring Classic Begins In Madison

#PSAWorldTour

The opening round of the JBW Patrol Spring Classic, PSA M10 tournament saw all but one of the seeded players sail through to the last eight of the event held in Madison, United States.

Englandís Anthony Graham was the man who caused the discrepancy after he bridged a 33-place gap in the World Rankings to defeat World No.134 and number seven seed Josue Enriquez.

Graham will look to spring another surprise when he faces Martin Knight in the second round following the New Zealanderís win over Reuben Phillips.

The top two seeds, Karim Ali Fathi of Egypt and Pakistanís Danish Atlas Khan both had successes against Cameron Stafford and Ben Coates, respectively, with Fathi recovering from a game down to win.

Fathi will take on Angus Gillams in the next round, while Khan goes up against Mohohlo who progressed after an injury to Sunny Seth.

Elsewhere, World No.110 Jan van den Herrewegen brushed aside the challenge of Danish wildcard Jonas Knigge Laursen with his quarter-final opponent, Welshman Peter Creed, cementing his place in the next round after disposing of Charlie Johnson 3-0.
