Rodriguez Beats Local Hero Galvez For Mexico Title
Miguel Angel Rodriguez
defeated local hero Eric Galvez in the final of the Cuauhtémoc Mexico City Squash Open at Squash Cuauhtémoc in Mexico City to round off a sensational year in which he has won three PSA Tour titles and become the highest-ranked Colombian of all-time.

The 21-year-old top seed from Bogotá overcame fierce resistance from Brazilian Rafael F Alarcon, the third seed, in the semi-finals of the $20,000 PSA Tour event in
Mexico before taking his anticipated place in his sixth Tour final of 2007.

Galvez, the second seed from Puebla, battled for 57 minutes before prevailing against Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira in an all-Mexican semi-final.

Much to the crowd's delight, the final proved to be the longest match of the event - with South American champion Rodriguez, ranked 36 in the world, ultimately coming through 11-8, 7-11, 11-5, 11-6 in 82 minutes.

The win marks Miguel Angel Rodriguez's first title triumph in
Mexico, but the sixth PSA Tour title success of his career.
