Clinton Claims Kenya Open Crown

 

A surprise all-South African final brought the Zain Kenya Open to a climax at Parklands Sports Club in the country's capital Nairobi when seventh seed Clinton Leeuw took on favourite Stephen Coppinger for the $7,000 PSA Tour squash title.

 

Leeuw had knocked out two higher-seeded opponents to reach the third Tour final of his career - and was facing Coppinger just over a week after losing to his higher-ranked compatriot in the quarter-finals of the Parklands Open at the same venue.

 

Coppinger took a 2/1 lead - but Durban-based Leeuw fought back to win 11-9, 4-11, 5-11, 11-8, 11-6 to collect the second PSA Tour title of his career.
