Grayson Fights Back to Beat Lobban in Chicago Open Final

New Zealandís Campbell Grayson battled back from two games down to defeat Scotlandís Greg Lobban in the final of the Life Time Chicago Open, PSA M15 tournament to claim his 11th PSA World Tour crown.

Grayson, the World No.42, was appearing at this tournament for the first time since he lost out to World No.15 Ryan Cuskelly in the final two years ago, and followed up a comfortable opening round victory over Argentinaís Leandro Romiglio with consecutive five-game epics against Finlandís Henrik Mustonen and Germanyís Raphael Kandra to reach the final.

Meanwhile, Lobbanís path to the final was more straightforward as he dispatched Belgian qualifier Jan van den Herrewegen, Canadian Andrew Schnell and Mexicoís Arturo Salazar, dropping just two games in the process.

As such, Lobban was the sharper of the two competitors at the beginning of the final and raced into a two-game lead, before a knee injury at 9-9 in the third after an awkward landing meant that the World No.38 needed a short break.

That injury proved to be a huge turning point in the encounter as Grayson went on to win the third game, and he maintained his composure against a struggling Lobban in the final two games to record a 5-11, 6-11, 11-9, 11-7, 11-4 victory to win his second PSA World Tour title of the year.
