Salazar Wins Battle of Top Seeds to Capture Resistencia Open Title

Second seed Arturo Salazar downed number one seed Christopher Gordon in straight games in the final of the Asociacion Chaquena de Squash Tour de las Americas - Regatas Resistencia Open, PSA M10 tournament to lift his ninth PSA World Tour title.

Salazar was in fine form en route to the final, defeating Juan Pablo Roude in the opening round, ending Robertino Pezzota’s 19-match unbeaten run in the last eight and then dispatching local hope Leandro Romiglio to secure his place in the showpiece finale.

Gordon, meanwhile, began his tournament with a dramatic 3-2 win over Mexico’s Edgar Zayas, before wins against Nicolas Caballero and New Zealand’s Martin Knight, the latter of which also went to five, saw him set up a deciding clash with Salazar in Club Regatas Resistencia.

Salazar, the World No.62, began well and rapidly ascended into a two-game lead against an opponent ranked a single place above him in the World Rankings.

He fended off an improvement from Gordon in the latter stages to close out a narrow victory in the third, which gave the 28-year-old an 11-8, 11-5, 11-9 triumph to win his third PSA World Tour crown of the season.
 
Pezzota And Romiglio Set Up Semi-final Clash

#PSAWorldTour

There was double delight for home supporters in the quarter-final of the Asociacion Chaquena de Squash Tour De Las Americas – Regatas Resistencia Open 2016, PSA M10 tournament, as home duo Robertino Pezzota and Leandro Romiglio booked their places in the semi finals.

Qualifier Robertino Pezzota extended his unbeaten run to 20 matches as he shocked second seed Arturo Salazar in four.

Pezzota took the opening game, but soon found himself pegged back by the Mexican, who last month won the Northern Open. However, Pezzota ensured that his rich vein of form continued as he rallied to take the next two games without reply, completing an 11-7, 5-11, 11-4, 11-2 triumph to seal his place in the last four.

Meanwhile, 2015 runner-up Romiglio fought off the challenge of Federico Cioffi in his fixture, and will go head-to-head with Pezzota in an all-Argentine semi-final clash as he hopes to end a run that has seen him bow out to his compatriot in each of his last two PSA World Tour events.

Elsewhere, top seed Christopher Gordon safely evaded the lucky loser for the event, Nicolas Caballero, courtesy of a 3-0 success, and he will take on New Zealand’s Martin Knight after he demolished Jonas Daehler in straight games.
 
Gordon Comes Through Gruelling Battle In Resistencia Open First Round

#PSAWorldTour

Number one seed Chris Gordon staved off a huge upset in the opening round of the Asociacion Chaquena de Squash Tour de las Americas – Regatas Resistencia Open, PSA M10 tournament after overturning a 2-1 deficit to defeat Mexico’s Edgar Zayas.

Gordon, who at 61 in the world is ranked 183 places above Zayas in the World Rankings, took the first game in comfortable style, before conceding the next two to leave him staring down the barrel of an unlikely defeat. But the 29-year-old dug in and used all of his 14 years of experience to mount a comeback, eventually claiming the win with an 11-6, 6-11, 5-11, 11-6, 11-9 scoreline to reach the next round.

Paraguay’s Nicolas Caballero, who received lucky loser status to advance past the qualifying stages, will go up against Gordon for a place in the last eight, after he dispatched Ireland’s Stuart Hadden in straight games.

Mexico’s Arturo Salazar is also into the last eight after cantering to victory against Argentina’s Juan Pablo Roude in a comfortable three-game salvo. He will do battle with Robertino Pezzota in the next round, with Pezzota currently in the midst of some of his best ever form, with title wins in his last three PSA World Tour events in addition to a current unbeaten streak of 19 matches after Juan Gomez Dominguez became the latest player to be put to the sword.

New Zealand’s Martin Knight moved beyond Bryan Cueto to seal his quarter-final berth and he will line up against Jonas Daehler for a place in the last four after the Swiss number five seed overcame Francisco Obregon in five.

Elsewhere, Leandro Romiglio and Federico Cioffi will face off in an all-Argentine affair after Romiglio saw off wildcard Gonzalo Miranda, and Cioffo upset Brazil’s Diego Gobbi.
 
Local Quartet Sweep Through To Resistencia Open

#PSAWorldTour

Argentina’s Robertino Pezzota led three of his compatriots through to the main draw of the Asociacion Chaquena de Squash Tour de las Americas – Regatas Resistencia Open, PSA M10 tournament – extending his unbeaten run to 18 matches in the process.

The World No.451 has lifted three PSA World Tour titles on the bounce, and triumphed on both stages of the 2016 Tour de las Americas in the last fortnight. He continued his fine form into his clash with Paraguay’s Nicolas Caballero to record an 11-4, 11-5, 11-7 victory, which has seen him advance to the main draw.

Pezzota will take on Mexico’s Juan Gomez Dominguez in the opening round of the main draw as he looks to maintain his momentum and capture a fourth consecutive PSA World Tour crown.

His brother, Rodrigo, didn’t have the same fortune however, as he succumbed to Juan Pablo Roude in four games. Roude dropped the opener, but recovered to take three games without reply and set up a main draw meeting with second seed Arturo Salazar.

Federico Cioffi and Francisco Obregon were the other victors in the final round of qualifying after they rose to wins over Daniel Alejandro Lomaglio and Francesco Marcantiono, respectively.

Cioffi is set to face off against Brazil’s Diego Gobbi in the next round, while Obregon will go head-to-head with Jonas Daehler for a place in the quarter-final.
 
Argentines Dominate Resistencia Open Qualifying Field

#PSAWorldTour

A number of local players triumphed in the opening qualifying round of the Asociacion Chaquena de Squash Tour de las Americas – Regatas Resistencia Open, PSA M10 tournament, with six Argentineans progressing to the next stage.

Francisco Obregon came up with the biggest shock of the day after he overcame top qualifying seed Mohamed Saeed in straight games. Saeed looked to be suffering from a thigh injury early on, and Obregon responded by making it a physical contest as a number of hard-hitting shots enabled him to record an 11-2, 11-2, 11-6 victory to move to within a single win of the main draw.

Obregon will come up against Francesco Marcantonio, one of only two non-Argentine players, in the final round of qualifying after the Paraguayan downed Agustin Silva 3-0.

World No.451 Robertino Pezzota, who has won both stages of the Tour de las Americas in recent weeks, extended his win streak to 17 matches with a routine win over Rodrigo Obregon, the brother of Francisco, and his reward is a final qualifying round clash with Nicolas Caballero, who defeated Ignacio Gutierrez.

Elsewhere, Daniel Alejandro Lomaglio and Federico Cioffi are set to go head-to-head in an all-Argentine encounter after they achieved respective wins over Nahuel Hernan Ramos and Guido Fontanazzi.

Rodrigo Pezzota will join his sibling, Robertino, in the next round after he dispatched Dylan Tymkiw comfortably, and he will take on Juan Pablo Roude, who came through in five against Gonzalo Miranda, for a place in the main draw.
