Rodriguez Upsets Golan For Brasilia Title

In a dramatic and marathon final of the Copa BRB Financeira Brasilia International in Brazil, Colombian Miguel Angel Rodriguez upset Spanish favourite Borja Golan in five games to take the $15,000 PSA Tour squash title at the MDO Club in Brasilia.

After the first three games which went to tie-breaks, the 22-year-old second seed from Bogotá crushed top seed Golan in the fourth game before going on to win the match 11-10 (3-1), 10-11 (0-2), 10-11 (0-2), 11-1, 11-9 in 110 minutes.

The triumph marked Rodriguez's second successive Tour title, after winning the Curitiba Open - also in
Brazil - last month.  It also brings the Colombian's PSA title tally to eight in less than three years.
