Williams Wins Devoy Squash Open

New Zealandís Evan Williams, the World No.99, collected the third title of his PSA World Tour career and the second on home soil as he triumphed dover Englandís Adam Murrills in the final of the 2016 Devoy Squash Open.

After coming through a bruising five-game battle with number two seed Lance Beddoes when he upset the odds with an 11-9 triumph in the fifth, Murrills was showing the effects as he got off to a slow start and slumped to an 11-2 defeat in the first game as Williams attacked at will.

Williams gained good momentum again in the second, keeping the ball deep and tight to close it out 11-5 and he continued to dominate in the third but Murrills wasnít ready to relinquish his chance at the title. The Englishman lengthened the rallies and slowed the pace to take the third game in a thrilling 11-8.

Game four began with Williams taking a slight lead putting pressure on Murrills and the local man remained cool under the pressure, shutting down the fighting Murrills and limiting opportunities to take the crown 11-7 in the fourth.

ďThis is the best event Iíve played on the tour,Ē said Williams.

ďIíve played all around the world and this was a really great tournament. Itís a dream for us players to be able to play on a glasscourt, particularly in front of family, friends and knowledgeable crowd.

ďThe court suited my style of play and Iím really proud to have played good squash all weekĒ.
