Galvez & Teran Celebrate Mexican Panamerican Championships Double

 

Top seeds Eric Galvez and Samantha Teran celebrated a Mexican double after contrasting successes in the individual finals of the Panamerican Squash Championships in Ambato, Ecuador.

 

Galvez, the world No37 from Puebla, eased into the men's final after a four-game win over Canadian David Phillips and faced a surprise opponent to produce an all-Mexican climax.

 

Jorge Isaac Baltazar Ferreira upset second-seeded Brazilian Rafael F Alarcon in the other semi-final to make the final for the first time.

 

Baltazar Ferreira, ranked 15 places below his compatriot, took the opening game.  But Galvez, champion for the first time in 2005, bounced back to win the match 5-11, 11-6, 11-8, 5-11, 11-8 to claim the regional title for the second time.

 

Samantha Teran confirmed her status as the best woman player in the region by reaching the other final without dropping a game. 

 

The world No16 from Mexico City's opponent was unheralded Canadian Tara Mullins, who made her breakthrough in the quarter-finals by despatching second seed Silvia Angulo Rugeles, from Colombia.  The 32-year-old from Toronto then had a walkover through to the final after the withdrawal of another Colombian Catalina Pelaez.

 

But Teran was too strong for her opponent in the final, winning 11-4, 11-7, 11-4 to secure the title for the fourth time since 2002.
