Camacho Claims Maiden Tour Title in BVI Open

World No.145 Jesus Camacho came up with a gladiatorial display to dispatch England’s Adam Murrills in the final of the British Virgin Islands Open Squash Championship, PSA M5 tournament - lifting his first PSA World Tour title in the process.

The 18-year-old Mexican, who hails from Mexico City, reached the third PSA World Tour final of his career courtesy of wins over wildcard Jules Snagg, compatriot Leonel Cardenas and second seed Cameron Stafford, while Murrills scored a notable scalp over pre-tournament favourite and home hope Joe Chapman on his way to the title-decider in the Tortola Sports Club.

The early exchanges were dominated by a flurry of intense, attacking squash as both players found themselves neck and neck for much of a high-octane opening game. Camacho saved a game ball at 10-9 down, and then took the next two points to go a game to the good.

An aggressive response from Murrills saw the 26-year-old surge 8-0 ahead in the second game, and he wrapped it up for the loss of just a single point. The momentum shifted again though in the third, with Camacho injecting pace into proceedings to put Murrills under immense pressure, eventually regaining his lead to put himself on the cusp of claiming a maiden PSA World Tour crown.

Murrills regrouped in a closely-contested fourth game and built up some rhythm with a number of spectacular winners, before unforced errors enabled Camacho to build up a succession of points. With the score delicately poised at 9-8 in Camacho’s favour, the teenager held his nerve to take the next two points without reply, closing out a 12-10, 1-11, 11-3, 11-8 triumph to open up his title account.

“This is my first PSA win," said a delighted Camacho.

"I must tell my family, I am so happy, thank you."

Murrills added: “I gave it my best shot today, but Jesus keeps it so fast and tight and doesn’t make many mistakes. It was a tough loss today, but congratulations to the youngster.”
 
Chapman Claims Last Four Spot

#PSAWorldTour

Top seed Joe Chapman battled through to the semi-final of the British Virgin Islands Open Squash Championship, PSA M5 tournament after coming through a hard-fought fixture with Guatemala’s Italo Bonatti in the last eight.

Chapman, a semi-finalist in last year’s tournament, surged into a two-game lead, but was pegged back in the third after a resurgent Bonatti began to find his rhythm and hit his lengths with consistency.

The World No.107 was soon back on top though after rattling off a succession of winners and he closed out an 11-9, 11-5, 7-11, 11-5 victory to remain on course to take the crown on home soil.

Up next for Chapman is an encounter with England’s Adam Murrills, who secured his place in a sixth successive PSA World Tour semi-final after dispatching Mauricio Sedano 3-0 in just 32 minutes.

Cameron Stafford and Jesus Camacho, seeds two and four, respectively, will face off in the other semi-final fixture. Stafford, of the Cayman Islands, saw off Kale Wilson in straight games, while Camacho is one win away from reaching a third career PSA World Tour final thanks to a highly-competitive 3-2 win against fellow Mexican Leonel Cardenas.
 
Qualifying Draws To A Close

#PSAWorldTour

The final qualifying round of the British Virgin Islands Open Squash Championship, PSA M5 tournament saw a trio of local players seal their places in the main draw at the Tortola Sports Club.

British Virgin Islands native Mike Adamson overcame compatriot Lee Osborne in straight games to ensure that he will compete in the main draw action. Adamson came through a tight opening game on the tie-break, and followed that up by moving through the gears to secure a 12-10, 11-7, 11-6 victory.

Adamson has the distinction of going up against top seed and title favourite Joe Chapman in round one, with Chapman looking to improve on his semi-final finish at last year’s tournament.

Elsewhere, Dion Anselm is also through to the main draw after dispatching Winston Findlay 3-0. Anselm dominated proceedings and fended off a late attempt at a fightback from his opponent in game three to advance. Up next for Anselm is a showdown with number two seed and 2015 semi-finalist Cameron Stafford, who makes his first appearance on the PSA World Tour since April.

Neville Sorrentino was the other home player to progress past the final round of qualifying courtesy of a win over Alex Davidson, and his reward is a first round meeting with Guatemala’s Mauricio Sedano.

Mexico’s Leonel Cardenas, meanwhile, ended the crowd’s hopes of seeing a local quartet make it through to the main draw after he defeated Rory Thornton, and he will take on World No.193 Albert Shoihet in his maiden PSA World Tour main draw appearance.
