Balbo Bursts Through In Barcelona
After winning his first PSA Tour title in the last event he entered in 2006, Julien Balbo has begun the new year with another triumph by clinching the Esportiu Rocafort Squash Open title in Barcelona.

In an all-French final of the established event in Spain, top seed Balbo prevailed 11-8, 8-11, 11-9, 11-5 in 65 minutes over fourth seed Yann Perrin.

The Barcelona win marks the 27-year-old from Le Bourget du Lac's second career title, after his 8 Gallery Open trophy success in Turin, Italy, in December
