Golan Overcomes Rodriguez In Bogotá Final

Borja Golan celebrated his second appearance in a PSA Tour squash final in Bogotá in a week by winning the Bogotá Tennis Club Circuito Mundial De Squash in the Colombian capital.

 

The 24-year-old Spaniard, who was runner-up in last week's Club El Nogal Colombian Open, faced local star Miguel Angel Rodriguez in the final of the 2-star PSA Tour event at Bogotá Tennis Club.

 

Rodriguez, the 21-year-old South American champion from Bogotá, delighted the local crowd by overturning two higher-seeded opponents - Mexico's Pan American Games champion Eric Galvez and England's second seed Joey Barrington - to provide unexpected Colombian interest in the climax.

 

After losing the first game in a close-fought tie-break, Rodriguez drew level by taking the second game.

 

But Golan, who returned to the world top 20 rankings in the new PSA list published this month, piled on the pressure to close out the match 11-10 (2-0), 6-11, 11-3, 11-6 after 71 minutes.

 

Golan, whose success takes his career PSA title tally to 15, now heads to England where he will begin the defence of his title next week in the Wolverhampton Open.

 

 

 

Rampant Rodriguez Romps Into Bogotá Final

Colombian squash star Miguel Angel Rodriguez secured a second sensational upset in 24 hours when he despatched Mexico's Pan American Games champion Eric Galvez in the semi-finals of the Bogotá Tennis Club Circuito Mundial De Squash to claim a place in the final of the new 2-star PSA Tour event in the Colombian capital Bogotá.

 

The 21-year-old South American champion from Bogotá, seeded five, removed second seed Joey Barrington in the quarter-finals. In the semis, he faced the third seed, but spurred on by the supportive Bogotá Tennis Club crowd, Rodriguez defeated Galvez 11-8, 11-6, 11-6 in 46 minutes to reach the ninth PSA Tour final of his career.

 

His opponent will be top-seeded Spaniard Borja Golan. The 24-year-old from Santiago DC, who has yet to drop a game in the event, beat Brazil's sixth seed Rafael F Alarcon 11-3, 11-3, 11-10 (2-0) in 31 minutes.

 

Runner-up in last week's Colombian Open in the city, Golan is celebrating his 19th PSA Tour final appearance.


Rodriguez Beats
Barrington In Bogotá

Local star Miguel Angel Rodriguez thrilled the packed and partisan crowd at the Bogotá Tennis Club when he upset second seed Joey Barrington in the quarter-finals of the Bogotá Tennis Club Circuito Mundial De Squash to become the only Colombian through to the last four of the new 2-star PSA Tour event in the Colombian capital Bogotá.

 

Rodriguez, the 21-year-old South American champion from Bogotá, took 61 minutes to overcome his higher ranked English opponent 11-8, 7-11, 11-6, 11-5 to record one of his best results on the PSA Tour.

The fifth seed now faces No3 seed Eric Galvez, the Mexican who repeated his Pan American Games final victory over Julian Illingworth by beating the seventh seed from the USA 6-11, 11-10 (2-0), 11-6, 11-9 in an 87-minute marathon.

 

There will also be South American interest in the other semi-final when Brazilian Rafael F Alarcon takes on top-seeded Spaniard Borja Golan.

 

Alarcon, the sixth seed, ended the brave run of Mexican qualifier Arturo Salazar - beating the 19-year-old 11-5, 11-6, 11-4. Golan had an easier ride, romping to victory after just two games when his opponent Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira, the No8 seed, was forced to retire with a throat infection, with the score standing at 11-3, 11-6.


Salazar Sails On In Bogotá

After beating a higher-ranked opponent to qualify for the event, Mexican teenager Arturo Salazar scored his second successive upset in the Bogotá Tennis Club Circuito Mundial De Squash when he beat No4 seed Shawn Delierre in a marathon 88-minute first round encounter in the new 2-star PSA Tour event at Bogotá Tennis Club in the Colombian capital Bogotá.

 

Arturo, 19, twice foiled fight-backs from the experienced Canadian before winning 11-10 (2-0), 3-11, 11-9, 7-11, 11-7.

 

Arturo's twin brother Cesar Salazar was unable to extend his involvement in the event into the last eight. Also a qualifier, Cesar went down 11-1, 11-8, 9-11, 11-5 to fellow Mexican Eric Galvez, the third seed.

 

England's Joey Barrington also survived a marathon battle to take his place in the last eight. The 27-year-old second seed took 83 minutes to get the better of US qualifier Christopher Gordon 11-3, 11-7, 9-11, 11-7.

 

Barrington now faces local hero Miguel Angel Rodriguez for a place in the semi-finals. The fifth seed from Bogotá - now Colombia's sole survivor in the event - defeated compatriot Bernardo Samper 11-9, 5-11, 11-6, 11-7 in just under an hour


Salazar Twins Burst Through In Bogotá

Mexican twins Arturo Salazar and Cesar Salazar claimed unexpected places in the main draw of the Bogotá Tennis Club Circuito Mundial De Squash after victories over higher-ranked opponents in the qualifying finals of the new 2-star PSA Tour event at Bogotá Tennis Club in the Colombian capital Bogotá.

 

Arturo, 19, upset France's Yann Perrin - ranked more than 100 places higher in the world list - 4-11, 11-8, 11-10 (2-0), 11-8, and will now face Canada's No4 seed Shawn Delierre in the first round.

 

Cesar despatched Argentina's Roberto Pezzota 11-7, 11-3, 3-11, 11-7 and will now meet fellow Mexican Eric Galvez, the Pan American Games champion, in the main draw.

 

Spaniard Borja Golan, who reached the final of last week's Club El Nogal Colombian Open in the city, is top seed in the event and will open his Bogotá Tennis Club campaign against Colombian Juan Pablo Gaviria.
