Pilley Retains Berkshire Open Trophy
Australia's Cameron Pilley successfully defended his title in the Berkshire Open in Williamstown, USA, when he beat France's Renan Lavigne in straight games in the final of the $20,000 PSA Tour squash event in its fourth year at Williams College.

Pilley, the world No21 from New South Wales competing in his third successive final, defeated his opponent ranked seven places higher 11-6, 11-9, 11-7.

"The match was much closer than the score had indicated, as Lavigne was highly competitive throughout the match and could have easily won the second and third games," said event spokesman Zafi Levy.

"Throughout the week, over a thousand spectators watched the menís event, creating a fantastic atmosphere at the Simon Squash Center."

The victory by second seed Pilley takes the UK-based 24-year-old to his 11th PSA Tour title success in his 19th final.

Pilley & Lavigne To Contest Berkshire Open Final
Australia's defending champion Cameron Pilley ended the impressive run of four-time US national collegiate champion Yasser El Halaby when he beat the 23-year-old Egyptian in the semi-finals of the Berkshire Open in Williamstown, USA.

Second seed Pilley earned a return to the final of the $20,000 PSA Tour squash event in its fourth year at Williams College after his close-fought 11-6, 10-11 (0-2), 11-10 (4-2), 11-8 victory over the No7 seed from Cairo.

"The match was played at a fast pace and produced some fantastic rallies to the delight of the capacity crowd at the Simon Squash Center," said event spokesman Zafi Levy.

Now in his third PSA Tour final of the year - and the 19th of his career - the 24-year-old from
New South Wales will face Frenchman Renan Lavigne.

The fourth seed from Marseille defeated US champion Julian Illingworth in four close games - recovering from a game down to win 8-11, 11-9, 11-3, 11-10 (2-0).

"
Lavigne was very consistent tonight and made very few mistakes during the match," added Levy. "Illingworth, the best American player of the modern era had his chances - though he made far too many mistake at the end of the match."

Lavigne, 32, will be celebrating his 13th Tour final appearance.

The 23-year-old 2006 Yale graduate will now face fourth-seeded Frenchman Renan Lavigne, who beat Hungary's Mark Krajcsak 11-7, 11-8, 11-9.

Egyptian Yasser El Halaby also produced a popular upset. The four-time collegiate champion, from Cairo, defeated Alister Walker, the fourth seed from England, 11-8, 11-9, 11-7.

The No7 seed will now take on reigning champion Cameron Pilley, the No2 seed from Australia who demolished Canadian Shawn Delierre 11-8, 11-4, 11-0 in just under 25 minutes.
