Rodriguez Captures Quito Crown
Just 24 hours after upsetting the event's No2 seed to claim an unexpected place in the final of the Quito Open, Colombian Miguel Angel Rodriguez defeated top seed Omar Mosaad in straight games to win the $15,000 PSA Tour squash title at Quito Tenis Y Golf Club in the Ecuador capital.

The 21-year-old from Bogotá - who this month achieved a career-high world No40 ranking to become the highest-ranked Colombian ever - was celebrating his fourth PSA Tour final appearance this year. 

But showing few signs of his 69-minute semi-final battle with Mexican Eric Galvez, fourth seed Rodriquez romped to an 11-9, 11-2, 11-6 victory over Mosaad, ranked three places higher in the world, in just 38 minutes.

The triumph marks the South American champion's fifth PSA Tour title success - and his second in 2007.

"It was an unforgettable tournament with amazing players and amazing squash," said tournament organiser Juan Carlos Santacruz.

Mosaad & Rodriguez To Contest Quito Final
Egypt's top seed Omar Mosaad and Colombia's No4 seed Miguel Angel Rodriguez will contest the final of the Quito Open after prevailing in four-game semi-finals of the $15,000 PSA Tour squash event at Quito Tenis Y Golf Club in the Ecuador capital.

Rodriguez beat seconded-Mexican Eric Galvez 11-7, 7-11, 11-8, 11-3 in 69 minutes to pull off his second upset over his Pan American rival in little more than a month. The 21-year-old from Bogotá - who this month achieved a career-high world No40 ranking to become the highest-ranked Colombian ever - is now celebrating his fourth PSA Tour final appearance this year, and the 11th of his career.

Favourite Mosaad, 19, battled for 54 minutes to overcome Brazil's third seed Rafael F Alarcon 11-5, 7-11, 11-10 (3-1), 11-7 to make his fourth PSA final.

Seeds Prevail In Quito
The top four seeds will contest the semi-finals of the Quito Open in the Ecuador capital - but event favourite Omar Mosaad was taken the full distance by Mexican qualifier Arturo Salazar in the quarter-finals of the $15,000 PSA Tour event at Quito Tenis Y Golf Club.

Mosaad, from Egypt, eventually beat his fellow 19-year-old opponent 11-8, 6-11, 11-7, 10-11 (0-2), 11-4 in 59 minutes and will now face Brazil's third seed Rafael F Alarcon for a place in the final.

Arturo's twin brother Cesar Salazar, also a qualifier, faced second seed Eric Galvez - but went down 11-5, 11-3, 11-4 to his fellow Mexican opponent.

Galvez now takes on Pan American rival Miguel Angel Rodriguez, the fourth seed from
Colombia.

Salazars Sail On In Quito
Mexican twins Cesar Salazar and Arturo Salazar continued their impressive run in the Quito Squash Open to secure unexpected places in the quarter-finals of the $15,000 PSA Tour event at Quito Tenis Y Golf Club in the capital city of Ecuador.

The 19-year-olds had already come through the qualifiers against expectations. Then Arturo Salazar recovered from two games down to beat South Africa's No8 seed Stephen Coppinger 6-11, 6-11, 11-2, 11-7, 11-1 in 54 minutes.

In the other half of the draw, Cesar Salazar also needed five games to overcome sixth-seeded Australian Tony James 11-10 (3-1), 7-11, 11-9, 6-11, 11-7 in a 75-minute first round marathon.

Arturo now faces
Egypt's top seed Omar Mosaad, while Cesar takes on fellow Mexican Eric Galvez, the second seed.

Salazar Twins Win Through Quito Qualifiers
Teenage Mexican twins Cesar and Arturo Salazar claimed places in the main draw of the Quito Squash Open after convincing wins in the qualifying finals of the $15,000 PSA Tour event at Quito Tenis Y Golf Club in the capital city of Ecuador.

Arturo Salazar despatched fellow Mexican Salvador Martinez 11-2, 11-3, 11-4 in just 20 minutes, while Cesar Salazar recovered from a game down to overcome Argentina's Gonzalo Tapiz 7-11, 11-5, 11-7, 11-4.

Welshman Jethro Binns boosted European interest in the event when he beat
Mexico's Arturo Castillo 11-4, 11-5, 11-4 to claim a place in the main draw. He will now face another Mexican, second seed Eric Galvez. Winner of the title in 2005, Galvez is expected to face Egypt's top seed Omar Mosaad in the final.
